By supporting the import of dairy products to Ukraine, we finance neighboring countries. The plot of the TV channel 1 + 1

We continue to draw attention to the critical situation with the import of dairy products.  This time we were heard by TV channel 1 + 1.

During 2020, imported dairy products equivalent to 1 million tons of milk were imported to Ukraine.

For Ukraine it is:

15 thousand jobs on farms that were never created;

150 thousand jobs in related industries, which were created not in Ukraine but in the EU;

About UAH 10 billion in total (1 billion from farms, 9 billion - in related industries) of tax deductions that went not to our infrastructure, education and medicine, but to the EU budget

We urge consumers to include the regime of economic patriotism and choose domestically produced products on the shelves!

And the Ministry of Economic Development, Trade and Agriculture - to support the application for a special investigation to protect against uncontrolled imports!
