Participants will demand from the government to protect the rights of agricultural producers and to distribute their state subsidies in the amount of 4 billion UAH. People will call for an end to the arbitrariness of the Ministry of Agrarian Policy, which is associated with a discredited and non-transparent system of state support distribution. In addition, they will require the government to implement the requirements of the Agrarian meeting, the result of which was the Resolution signed by the agrarians to the authorities.

The issue of reducing VAT on food products from 20% to 7% will also be raised.

The participants of the action will bring cows and pigs, agriculture equipment, cisterns with milk, posters and leaflets under the building of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine.
