Farmers in Poland spilled grain from heavy trucks on the border with Ukraine

European Union, (bbabo.net). In Poland, farmers spilled grain from Ukrainian heavy trucks in the village of Dorohusk, located near the border with Ukraine. TASS reports this, citing a statement by politician and one of the organizers of the protest Rafal Mekler.

On one of the social networks, he wrote that Polish farmers dumped Ukrainian grain, and now the trucks are returning back to Ukrainian territory.

Protests began in Poland back in November last year, when Polish carriers blocked three checkpoints on the border with Ukraine. From time to time, farmers join them and block the passage to another checkpoint. By their actions, they demand the abolition of the benefits that the EU has provided to Ukrainian cargo carriers since February 24, 2022.

Farmer protests span 12 countries, producing about half of Europe's meat and grain.

Polish Infrastructure Minister Dariusz Klimczak said in January that the government had entered into an agreement with carriers to end the blocking of passages at checkpoints on the border with Ukraine.
