A complaint against Polish farmers filed because of spilled grain

Feb 12, 2024

The Embassy of Ukraine in Poland appealed to the local police because of the spillage of grain by Polish farmers from Ukrainian grain trucks in transit to Lithuania. The police have already opened an investigation.

This was stated by Ambassador of Ukraine to Poland Vasyl Zvarych, according to his post on Facebook.

"The Embassy and Consulate General of Ukraine in Lublin immediately appealed to the Polish police to open a case on the fact of this shameful crime," he wrote.

According to him, the Polish police opened proceedings and began the necessary procedures.

As the ambassador noted, such methods of protesters should not be tolerated in a European civilized country, "not to mention the moral side of this provocation".

"Therefore, we demand to find and bring the perpetrators to justice. The Polish authorities should respond decisively in the legal field to this shameful and offensive crime for Ukrainians and most Poles and prevent such barbaric actions in the future," Zvarych added.

As a reminder, Polish farmers protesting near the Dorohusk checkpoint on the border with Ukraine spilled grain from three Ukrainian trucks on the road on February 11. The farmers started the blockade last week, demanding that the decision on duty-free trade between Ukraine and the EU be canceled.
