"Sunflowers are not a stock crop. It is of manipulated value. It is given that there is an overproduction of sunflower, and there is none. Neither Ukrainian sunflower affects the price, nor ours. I know this sunflower is gone. The U.S. Department of Agriculture report has been manipulated. "This sunflower," he said.
"Ukrainian grain will not affect prices. The commercial price of the oil is currently manipulated. It should be about 2 leva, and it is more. I will not participate in the protests. Over the past three years, a big bubble has been created. Farmers were not prepared for managers who sold expensive tractors, for seeds that grow without moisture," Ilchovski added.
"The former prime minister misled them. Everything is controlled. The control has not stopped – sell cheaply, because the cheap comes from Ukraine - that's the idea. They have to sell below cost and are at a loss. They are at huge losses because of the expensive cost per acre. The price is not global. Sunflower is not on the stock exchange. There is no such thing in the world. It is determined that the price will be such and an end, "added the manufacturer.
