Quote: "[We demand - ed.] the most rapid, objective, and transparent investigation of the relevant precedent. So it publicly demonstrates that this is not the right moment, that it should not be continued…

We insist once more on the earliest possible public investigation and presentation of the findings, including those for our country."

Details: Furthermore, the Deputy Minister emphasised that Ukraine should be compensated for the damage caused.

Quote: "When the damage and the guilty parties are identified, it goes without saying that the damage must be compensated. But first, the violation must be confirmed. As a result, this is assumed to be the conclusion of the investigation.

Now it is critical that it be carried out as soon as possible after all procedural actions have been completed. The legal decision has been approved. It is already the foundation, including that for compensation."

Background:

  • Farmers from all around Poland started a new protest action on Friday, 9 February. It will see Polish-Ukrainian border checkpoints and roads leading to them blocked, and is expected to last for 30 days.
  • On 11 February, Polish agrarians protesting near the checkpoint on the Polish-Ukrainian border spilled grain from three Ukrainian lorries on the ground.
  • Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba said those responsible should be held accountable.
