Ukraine tried to save its forests in Carpathian mountains by banning the export of timber. Now, EU gives two conditions to Ukraine in order to receive a tranche of 600 mln Euros. One of the this conditions is to lift the ban on export of timber. That’s disgusting on EU part, because the Ukraine is experiencing one the fastest rate of deforestation.

Ukraine needs to lift the ban on export of timber and settle the issue
of social payments to internally displaced persons in order to get the
next tranche of macro-financial assistance to the tune of EUR 600
million from the EU, new head of the EU Delegation to Ukraine,
Ambassador Hugues Mingarelli has said.
