  1. Ukraiunian farmers become rich, at least in Ukrainian dimensions. Most will go to the big compagnies off course, but said that, 31 billion dollars is real money. To compare it is 60% of the State Budget……alone!

    • When the farmers are happy EVERYONE is happy.
      My wife’s grandmother took some food once to some nazi occupying forces. When she got home, grandpa asked what she was thinking because nazis just shoot and kill. She said, “They won’t kill people that are feeding them.” She lived a long time. Let’s hope everyone in Europe will try to help Ukraine grow food for Europe instead of Moskovia.
