Hungary’s government has widened its temporary ban on the imports of Ukrainian agricultural products to include honey, wine, bread, sugar, and a range of meat and vegetable products. The list of items to be banned were revealed in a government decree, after Budapest announced a measure to halt imports of grain, oilseeds, and several other products. In recent days, Poland, Hungary, and Slovakia banned the import of grain and other food items from war-hit Ukraine after a slump in prices triggered protests from local farmers. Bulgaria is expected to make a similar announcement later on April 19.
