Details: The Council of Ministers of Poland at a meeting on 12 September adopted a resolution "regarding actions aimed at continuing precautionary measures regarding the import of certain types of agricultural products from Ukraine".


Quote: "The Council of Ministers calls on the European Commission to extend the ban on grain imports from Ukraine after September 15.

Otherwise, Poland will introduce its own ban at the national level. The ban will remain in effect until the settlement of relations in agrarian issues between Poland and Ukraine...

The government cannot agree to Ukrainian grain destabilising the domestic agricultural market. We help our neighbours, but we have to protect Polish farmers."
