Poland will extend the ban on Ukrainian agricultural products after September 15.
Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development Robert Telus confirmed that after September 15, the ban on importing Ukrainian grain to Poland will be extended, reports polskieradio.pl.
Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki and Deputy Prime Minister of Poland Yaroslav Kaczyński clearly stated: “After September 15, Ukrainian grain will not enter Poland. We will protect Polish agriculture,” said Telus.
In mid-September, the ban on importing wheat, corn, sunflower seeds, and rapeseed from Ukraine in Poland, Slovakia, Bulgaria, Romania, and Hungary will cease to apply. Five countries neighboring Ukraine favor extending the ban at least until the end of the year. Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said that Poland will maintain the ban even without the consent of the European Commission.
