Förderung des Absatzes landwirtschaftlicher Erzeugnisse aus der EU als mittelfristige Reaktion auf das russische Embargo


Die Kommission hat heute ihre Absicht bekräftigt, weitere 30 Mio. EUR an EU-Geldern für ab 2015 laufende Absatzförderungsprogramme im Rahmen der GAP bereitzustellen (zusätzlich zu den im GAP-Haushalt jährlich vorgesehenen 60 Mio. EUR). Da diese Programme kofinanziert werden, dürften sich aus dieser Änderung zusätzliche 60 Mio. EUR für Absatzförderungsmaßnahmen ergeben. Mit diesen zusätzlichen Anstrengungen sollen die Auswirkungen der russischen Maßnahmen gegen bestimmte landwirtschaftliche Erzeugnisse aus der EU abgefedert werden, beginnend mit den Absatzförderungsprogrammen, die bis Ende September einzureichen sind.

Exceptional support measures for EU producers of perishable fruit & vegetables English (en)


In the context of Russian restrictions on imports of EU agricultural products, the European Commission is moving as from today to introduce support measures for certain perishable fruits & vegetables.

Commenting on the decision, Commissioner Dacian Cioloş stated: “Taking into account the market situation following the Russian restrictions on imports of EU agricultural products, with effect from today, I am triggering CAP emergency measures which will reduce overall supply of a number of fruit and vegetable products on the European market as and when price pressures become too great in the coming months. All farmers of the concerned products - whether in producer organisations or not - will be eligible to take up these market support measures where they see fit. Acting early will provide an efficient support to the price paid to producers on the internal market, help the market adjust and be cost effective."

Statement by Commissioner Dacian Cioloș concerning the ban on EU agricultural exports into the Russian Federation English (en)


"I understand the concern expressed in the EU farming sector. I want to underline that the Common Agricultural Policy has new and modernised tools to stand by them, as soon as it is needed, including our crisis reserve, which is already available now. I am confident that our resilient farm sector will reorient rapidly towards new markets and opportunities.

But there must be support to help this transition happen smoothly. This requires a joined up, European response. I have spoken with Farm Ministers from across Europe, and in particular the Italian Farm Minister and Council President. In the current context, the most important is to react in a proportionate and rapid way should the situation arise.
