"We appeal to the Polish authorities and police to do everything under the sun to find and fairly punish those responsible for such shameful actions," he said.

Background:

  • On the night of 24-25 February, the most extensive sabotage of Ukrainian grain since the start of the farmers' protests occurred in Poland – a total of 160 tonnes of Ukrainian grain in eight railway wagons was spilled by the protesters.
  • At a press conference on Sunday, President Volodymyr Zelenskyy expressed hope that the issues with Poland could be resolved through high-level talks, but that if this dialogue fails, he would go to great lengths to protect Ukrainian businesses.
