During a visit to the Institute of Potato Growing of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine in late April, Agrarian Policy and Food Minister Mykola Prysiazhniuk supposedly told Ukrainian Prime Minister that, "we are studying the possibility of using ... part [of the crop] for [production of] biofuel."
According to Interfax , Prysiazhniuk said that evaluating the feasibility of using fodder potatoes to produce biofuel will conclude within two or three months. We say, if the Ukraine determines that potatoes aren't to be used for biofuel production, then let there be vodka instead.
