President of Poland Andrzej Duda said that the decision to impose a unilateral ban on imports of Ukrainian agricultural products was the right one.
He said this in an interview with TVP1, as cited by PAP.
Duda noted that Polish farmers ensure the country's food security and "we will never be able to show them enough gratitude for this."
"I think it is a right 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 must be done to ensure the maximum possible transit," the Polish president emphasized.
According to him, Ukrainian grain "did not reach the countries that needed it" but ended up in markets such as Poland.
"The Polish government had to take radical steps to support Polish farmers, to protect our market and agriculture," Duda added.
