Slovakia will also temporarily stop importing grain and some other agricultural products from Ukraine. The government in Bratislava announced this on Monday.
The move follows similar decisions by Poland and Hungary.
The Central European countries are concerned about the grain entering their countries, driving down local farmers’ prices.
Ukraine responded to the Polish decision by stating that it understood the difficult position for Polish farmers but that Ukrainian farmers have a much harder time.
The steps taken by Poland and Hungary also drew criticism from the European Commission. Brussels said that trade policy lies with the commission and that countries cannot make unilateral decisions about it.
However, this week there would already be talks about a solution for importing agricultural products from Ukraine.
