Poland demands €1B from the EU to transit Ukrainian grain.
Due to the grain agreement’s disruption, Poland stated that investments in developing its logistics infrastructure to increase the export of Ukrainian grain and other agricultural products should amount to at least €1B.
According to Polskie Radio 24, Poland stated that at least €500M is needed to expand border terminals for heavy trucks and railway infrastructure in Przemyśl. The second €500M should be spent on the modernization of railway border crossings between Poland and Ukraine, constructing terminals for trucks, and developing infrastructure for cargo traffic management at the border.
At the same time, the European Commission has already approved a €176M Polish program to support companies during the war between Russia and Ukraine. The aid, provided as subsidies on loan interest rates, will be available to companies engaged in the trade or purchasing of grain and agricultural seeds.
