In January 2024, the majority of exports of agricultural products from Ukraine – 6.7 million tonnes – were carried out by sea. Only 370,000 tonnes, or 5% of the total, went through Poland.

Quote from the statement: "This shows that the claims made by Polish agricultural associations about their market being oversaturated are unfair."

The European Commission has announced a meeting of the Coordination Platform for the export and transit of Ukrainian agricultural products amid the Polish farmers’ blockade of the Ukrainian border.

On 20 February, Polish farmers blocked all border crossings between Poland and Ukraine, as well as access roads to railway transshipment stations and seaports.
