Poland has prepared transit corridors for Ukrainian grain: Duda's statements
Poland has prepared transit corridors for the export of Ukrainian grain to countries that need it. At the same time, the government believes that the decision to impose a unilateral ban on imports of agricultural products from Ukraine is correct.
This was stated by Polish President Andrzej Duda on TVP1. "Thanks to the work of our farmers, we are self-sufficient. We do not need grain from Ukraine. During the war, their excellent harvests went very little to the countries that really needed them. Poland has prepared transit corridors that allow Ukrainian grain to pass through Poland and be exported wherever it is needed. We are trying to help Ukraine and those countries that need this help," he said.
Duda noted that he believes it was the right decision to leave the ban on the sale of grain from Ukraine in Poland. The Polish leader emphasizes that everything should be done to ensure that the transit of Ukrainian grain is as large as possible.
The President of Poland also added that the decision to impose a unilateral ban on imports of Ukrainian agricultural products was the right one. "I think it is a good decision that the Polish government has maintained the ban on the sale of Ukrainian grain on the Polish market. However, I am absolutely convinced that everything should be done to ensure the maximum possible transit," he emphasized.
According to him, Ukrainian grain "did not reach the countries that needed it" but ended up in such markets as Poland.
As OBOZREVATEL previously reported, the bulk carrier Aroyat loaded with Ukrainian grain arrived in Turkey. This is the second vessel to pass through the temporary corridor across the Black Sea.
