 The Party of Regions is Boasting About Eggs: The Country is Rapidly Growing

Party of Regions deputy Yelena Bondarenko states that Ukraine is a dangerous competitor in Europe in regard to agricultural products.

In an interview to Glavkom she said: "They (Europeans) understand that. They have their own problems selling their agricultural products and now they have Ukraine which is rapidly growing."

"I was surprised to find out that last year Ukraine became #1 egg producer in the world. We do not produce them for internal market only. We would like to export them even though they have a short expiration period," she added. It is the same with pork and chicken. "We have problems with production of cattle and dairy products but when we reach a certain level, when we cover our demand we will need to go to external markets," said Bondarenko.

But in her opinion we are not welcome in Europe. "They see Ukraine as a consumer market for their products and not vice versa. And this explains the double and triple standards in regard to Ukraine. Everyone has their own interest, everyone is fighting for the success of his country without consideration for other countries. There is no charity here," noted the Regions deputy.
