Ukraine dropped in the ranking of world milk producers from 6 th position to 25.
“Ukraine in the 90-ies was part of the six world leaders in the production of milk. According to statistics, we are with 10 million tons of production in 18th place. But in such cases I like to say that there are 3 kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics. So here are the statistics about 10 million tons of production is a blatant lie. We produce less of these volumes and are at 25th and 26th place. Or even worse,” — said Vadym Chagarovsky.
According to him, this year Ukraine for the first time in history officially won’t get 10 million t of milk.
“Although, as already said, we have those volumes nor on paper nor in fact long gone. For 10 months compared to the same period last year, we attracted 400 thousand tons of milk,” — said the expert.
Recall that according to Vadim Chagarovsky, Ukraine needs to set tariffs and quotas for European dairy producers.
