Prisyazhnyk: the spring agricultural works are under threat because of blocking of the Regional State Administration
The press service of the Ministry of Agrarian Policy and Food informs that the employees of the Ministry of Agrarian Policy and Food will return to their working places in the nearest time, as soon as the renovation work will be finished in the building, which was earlier seized by the protesters.
"We plan to renew the full-fledged activity of the ministry as soon as possible. The law enforcement bodies finished their part of the work there, as well as the commission, organized to inspect the state of the building, which entered the employees of the ministry. As soon as the proper conditions will be renewed, all the personnel will return to their working places," the minister informed.
Despite of the renovation of the full-fledged activity of the ministry, the problem of coordination of work with the Regional State Administration, which is blocked, remains; because of this the spring agricultural works and the stable price situation in the regions are under threat," the minister noted.
"We do not have the possibility to collect the latest information about the state of the winter crops, which makes a big problem for the industry on the eve of the spring agricultural works. There is also no coordination of work with the regions regarding the planning of the structure of the spring crops areas. Moreover, cooperation with the regions for the development of the program of supply to the landowners with the mineral fertilizers and fuels and lubricants is paralyzed," Prisyazhnyk said.
The official also assured that all necessary measures will be taken, to prevent increase of prices on food in the regions, especially on the social types of bread.
"The situation with provision of the population with the social kinds of bread at an affordable price is s a matter of concern. The Ministry solved this issue by intervention of flour from the Agrarian Fund to the bakery. For this purpose the tripartite agreements between bakery complexes, the Agrarian Fund and regional state administrations were concluded. Currently this work is hampered, because it is impossible to conclude the contracts because of the blocking of the Regional State Administration. But we are making every effort to solve this issue," the minister informed.
