Ukraine imposes restrictions on the transport of grain by rail to Moldova and Romania


After Russia blocked Ukrainian ports on the Black Sea, Kiev was forced to use the railway as the main transportation route for grain exports. One drawback is the accumulation of wagons at border crossing points.

Kiev has previously suspended rail grain exports to Poland.

APK-Inform stated that the restrictions in the direction of Romania started on May 4, and on May 5 restrictions were introduced in the direction of the Danube ports of the Republic of Moldova and Ukraine.

The Ukrainian Ministry of Agriculture announced on Thursday that grain exports amounted to 46 million tons in the 2021/22 July-June season, including 132,000 tons so far in May.

Senior agricultural officials said in April that Ukraine exported up to 300,000 tons of grain in March, and APK-Inform noted that Ukraine exported 923,000 tons of grain in April.

Ukraine exported up to 6 million tonnes of grain a month before Russia invaded the country on February 24. Also, to date, Ukraine has exported 38.99 million tons in the 2020/21 season.
