Ukraine: Biotechnology and Other New Production Technologies Annual
The biotechnology regulatory system in Ukraine is still not fully developed, but the country is gradually adjusting its domestic policies to align with the European Union’s regulations. Agricultural biotechnology is a disputed item in Ukraine. Currently, no GE events are officially approved for agricultural and food production. Therefore, no GE products can be legally imported into Ukraine, which restricts trade in some agricultural and food commodities from the United States. The Government of Ukraine does not permit the cultivation of GE crops, however, there are reports of unregistered GE production for certain crops.
