Poland assures that transit of Ukrainian grain has doubled

Warsaw, Aug 3 (Prensa Latina) The transit of Ukrainian grain through Poland is constantly growing, from 114,000 tons in February to more than 260,000 tons in June, the Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Robert Telus, said on Thursday.

According to Telus, who was quoted by local television, this is very good news for local farmers, because Ukrainian grain does not enter the domestic market.

Thus, the volume of Ukrainian grain in transit increased 2.3 times, Telus said.

At the same time, the minister stressed that he sees an opportunity for the European Commission to extend the decision to ban the exports of Ukrainian grain to his nation after September 15.

We are interested in protecting the Polish farmers, and that is why Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki made a clear statement that after September 15, Ukrainian grain will not go to Poland, Telus emphasized again.

According to him, the Polish side wants the so-called solidarity corridors to work effectively, which would allow efficient transportation of Ukrainian goods without harming the local agricultural sector.
