The Government of Ukraine considers regional authorities' interfering on activity of traders of agricultural production (in particular such as grains and sugar beet) unacceptable and intends to interrupt such practice.

Vice-Prime-Minister Of Ukraine L. Kozachenko declared about this during the second German-Ukrainian Agrarian Exchange "Agrokontakty-2001" on November 29.

According to his information cases of regional administrations' banning of grain moving out of oblasts are seen more often in the southern and eastern regions of Ukraine. Companies complain about some regions authorities' interfering in their activity, L. Kozachenko pointed out.

"Due to unjustified acts of authorities traders aren't able to fulfill made contracts", Vice-Prime-Minister said.
