The European Commission threatens to sue Hungary, Poland and Slovakia over the ban on grain imports from Ukraine

Hungarian Minister of Agriculture Istvan Nad announced that the European Commission threatened Hungary, Poland and Slovakia with legal measures against them for imposing a unilateral ban on the supply of Ukrainian grains to their markets.
The minister noted that Central European countries were forced to impose a ban on importing agricultural products from Ukraine, because it caused serious harm to the interests of their farmers.

“Now the European Commission threatens to initiate legal proceedings against Hungary, Poland and Slovakia due to actions taken at the national level,” Nad said in a statement. According to him, Budapest has already received a message from Brussels in this regard.

The Minister explained that the European Commission, in fact, is working at the expense of all EU countries, because the embargo imposed by the Central European countries protects the entire European Common Market from Ukrainian products, and the Hungarian government has long been making efforts against the import of agricultural goods from Ukraine at reduced prices.

Three months ago, the European Commission refused to extend the ban on supplies from Ukraine to Bulgaria, Hungary, Poland, Romania and Slovakia for four types of grains and oilseeds (wheat, corn, rapeseed and sunflower seeds), which expired on September 15.

In this regard, the Hungarian government decided to continue the unilateral embargo and expand it to include 20 other types of Ukrainian agricultural products, including grains, meat, eggs, vegetable oils, vegetables and honey. Poland and Slovakia also announced the continuation of the embargo on grain supplies from Ukraine.


British Maritime Authority: An entity that identified itself as the Yemeni Navy ordered a ship to change its course to a Yemeni port

The British Maritime Trade Operations Authority announced today, Tuesday, that an entity claiming to be affiliated with the Yemeni army requested a ship that was targeted in the south of the Red Sea to go to one of the Yemeni ports.
The British Maritime Authority said on the “X” platform (formerly Twitter) that it “received a report that an entity identifying itself as the Yemeni Navy is ordering a ship to change its course to a Yemeni port.”

Earlier on Tuesday morning, the British Maritime Trade Operations Authority confirmed that a fire had broken out on board a ship near Bab al-Mandab, and said that it was advising ships to be cautious, while the Houthis announced an expected statement to be issued by the armed forces.

The authority said, on its website, that it "received a report of a fire on board a ship in Bab al-Mandab, 15 nautical miles west of the port of Mokha [west of Taiz Governorate, southwest of Yemen] at 21:00 UTC."

She added, "The authorities informed the International Search and Rescue Organization of a fire on board the ship. All crew members were transferred to a safe place." The British authority advised nearby ships to "exercise caution and report any suspicious activity."

Earlier, the group announced that it would prevent the passage of ships bound for Israel of any nationality if the food and medicine it needed did not enter the Gaza Strip.

It is noteworthy that the Houthis seized the ship "Galaxy Leader", owned by Israeli businessman Rami Ungar, the founder of Ungar Holdings LTD and the founder and owner of Ray Shipping LTD, one of the largest car importers in Israel.

The Yemeni Ansar Allah group seized the ship last November,  in response to the Israeli bombing of the Gaza Strip , which claimed the lives of thousands of Palestinians, and took it to a port in western Yemen.

The group vowed to  target all types of ships flying the Israeli flag, and those operated or owned by Israeli companies.
