Candidates for European Parliament self-promote on criticism of Ukraine

Elisabeth Kestinger
In several days, on May 23, elections to the European Parliament start. They will pass in 28 EU Member States, including Great Britain. To win elections, some European politicians resort to manipulations, including discredit of Ukraine, the European Parliament deputy tells

So, recently, the Minister of Agriculture of Austria Elisabeth Kestinger said that Ukraine delivers to the Austrians products with "low standards of production".

In particular, was talked of the Ukrainian chicken meat which was repeatedly checked by the same European inspectors and gave positive conclusions, opening the markets. By the way, according to MINAPK the Ukrainian chicken meat is bought by 80 countries of the world.

Therefore, the statement Kestinger revolted representatives of profile association "Union of Poultry Breeders of Ukraine". Experts explained that at the Ukrainian enterprises where they produce fowl which is exported to the EU, high European standards are entered. "As the minister can say to

it, without having convinced personally of all processes of production and processing of the products exported to the EU from Ukraine?" - the head of association Sergey Karpenko is surprised.

It considers that the criticism of Ukraine from the minister of Austria, in combination the eurodeputy, can be connected with two reasons. The first - intentions of the EU to increase quotas for import of the Ukrainian chicken meat to the Union countries, the second - elections to European Parliament.

"By the time of vote a question of increase in quotas for Ukraine, all of us will meet more often in the European press such messages, statements compromising the Ukrainian producers especially as it is warmed up also on the eve of elections to European Parliament where some deputies need to show how they support the European producer", - Karpenko assumes.

Earlier in the comment the People's Deputy, the member of agrarian committee of BP Leonid Kozachenko told that the international inspectors are interested in production of chicken meat in Ukraine long ago.

"Arrived to Ukraine the European Commissioner and veterinarians five years ago. They made visits on 10 Ukrainian enterprises, including - MHP (the largest producer and the exporter of chicken meat in Ukraine - ред). And the European Commissioner said that the EU lagged behind Ukraine in the sphere of poultry farming at least for 10, and even 15 years", - he told.

Reference: Elisabeth Kestinger is the Austrian politician, the federal Minister of Agriculture, forestry, the environment, water management and tourism since December 18, 2017. It was elected the European Parliament deputy from the Austrian People's Party in 2009, continued the mandate in 2014.
