The Belarusian authorities have extended the ban on exporting cereals outside the country for another six months, leaving those destined for international humanitarian assistance free.

This has been signed by the Belarusian Prime Minister, Roman Golovchenko, in a resolution of the Council of Ministers which refers to the “temporary prohibition” of the export of cereals.

In addition, a list has been published detailing that the cereals subject to export prohibition are mainly wheat, rye and barley.

The ban applies from the borders of the Eurasian Economic Union, which is chaired by the Belarusian president himself, Alexander Lukashenko, and includes Armenia, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan, as well as Russia and Belarus.

In this way, the Belarusian authorities extend for six months the measure approved in early March, just a few days after the start of the war in neighboring Ukraine.
