The Polish authorities expect that the transit of Ukrainian agricultural products through the country will be suspended from April 1. Negotiations on licensing of agricultural exports from Ukraine are also nearing completion, which will allow for new restrictions on the import of Ukrainian products to Poland.

This was announced by Polish Minister of Development and Technology Krzysztof Hetman, who actively supports the striking Polish farmers. "We hope – as we have talked about this with the Ukrainian side – that the transit, primarily of corn and wheat, will virtually stop from April 1," Hetman said on Radio Lublin.

As for the import restrictions, it is currently forbidden to export Ukrainian rapeseed, corn, wheat and sunflower to Poland. New restrictions in the form of licensing are planned for a number of other products, including sugar, eggs and poultry, and fruit, especially apples.

According to Hetman, the negotiations on the restrictions should be completed by March 31. "We have made great progress in negotiations with Ukraine on the licensing system... I hope that these negotiations will continue this week and will be completed," Hetman emphasized.

He also clarified that in recent months the government has been able to meet other demands of the protesters. In particular, these include subsidies for agricultural producers and easing the rules of the EU Green Deal.

As reported by OBOZ.UA, the blockade of the border between Ukraine and Poland continues, with trucks being allowed to cross with serious restrictions. At the same time, the Poles lifted the blockade on the border with Russia ahead of schedule.
