to the Commission

 Subject:  Loan to Ukraine for the purchase of a Slovenian poultry meat company
 Answer in writing 

Ukrainian producers are circumventing the EU-Ukraine Free Trade Agreement, and unlimited amounts of duty-free poultry meat are being placed on the EU market. With that in mind, it is worrying that the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) is reported to be considering granting a EUR 100 million loan to finance the purchase of a Slovenian poultry meat company by a large Ukrainian firm.

In the light of the foregoing:

1. Does the Commission not take the view that such action by the EBRD would result in serious adverse effects for the EU market?
2. Does the Commission take the view that it is appropriate to use EU taxpayers’ money to facilitate the takeover of an EU poultry company by Ukraine?
3. Does the Commission realise that such actions have a major impact in terms of negative attitudes among EU producers and play a role in lowering the quality of the meat available on the internal market?
