The situation with the ban on the import and transit of Ukrainian agricultural products by some EU countries is purely political and benefits the aggressor. The chair of UAC Andrii Dykun stated this during the RailFreight Summit 2023, which took place in Warsaw.
"The suspension of imports to the Polish market will not raise the price of their grain, as this is a period when world prices are falling and Ukrainian grain do not affect at all," Andrii Dykun emphasized to participants of today's summit, including the Minister of Infrastructure of Poland, representatives of the European Railway Agency, Polish ports, international logistics companies, and others.
According to him, the biggest threat to Ukrainian farmers is the question of continuing the "grain initiative."
"The current situation is purely political. Unfortunately, this affects our farmers, who are the engine of the country's economy, who help the military. They suffer from the destruction of their farms and mined fields, and still have last year's harvest for export. However, it is worth noting that the biggest threat to us is not the cessation of imports, but the issue of transit and continuation of the "grain initiative."
Andrii Dykun also thanked the Polish people and government for their help in the fight against the enemy on all fronts. And expressed hope for further unity with Poland, therefore everything that is happening in terms of imports and transit is purely political and benefits the aggressorFriday, 19 May 2023
