The first couple of months of 2023 had to face the consequences of the on-going invasion of Ukraine by Russia, the energy crisis and the inflation rate which heavily affected prices further leveraging the consumers’ purchasing power.

The repercussions of the war in Ukraine for European farmers in the countries bordering Ukraine require both urgent responses and the structuring of sectors, and therefore investments that are cruelly lacking in these Member States.
