Polish services will check all Ukrainian grain transiting through the country to other countries at the border.

This was announced on Monday in an interview with PAP by the Deputy Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development of the Republic of Poland, Michal Kolodziejczak, Ukrinform reports.

"Today, clear instructions will be given that we will check all grain at the border (with Ukraine) that is subject to sealing, export, and is only transit grain," Kolodziejczak said.

The Deputy Minister explained that this is being done because after this grain transits to Germany and it is found there to be of poor quality, it "returns to Poland by 99% as European grain." He added that similar cases also occur in ports.

"This grain does not return to Ukraine, but to Poland," emphasized Kolodziejczak.

He noted that he will request detailed information on Ukrainian grain that was returned to Poland as inferior from Germany and ports.

The Polish official also announced that he will instruct the creation of an information platform through which Polish farmers will be able to report problems and violations by phone and online directly to the ministry.

As it is known, the Prime Minister of Poland, Tusk, said on Sunday that growing economic problems, including the situation at the border with Polish farmers and carriers, could lead to an increase in anti-Ukrainian sentiments in Poland. The head of the Polish government also noted that an answer should be found to the question of why, despite the embargo, a lot of agricultural products from Ukraine still cross the border, and in this context, attention should be paid to the work of border services. Tusk informed that selective checks on freight transportation have also begun at the Polish-Lithuanian border. He stressed that Warsaw will also monitor the Polish-Lithuanian border in the context of possible entry of Ukrainian agricultural products into Poland.

Polish farmers began blocking several checkpoints on the Polish-Ukrainian border on February 9. According to the organizers of the strike from the independent farmers' union "Solidarity," roadblocks near checkpoints will last for a month until March 10.
