Polish farmers protesting near the Dorohusk checkpoint on the border with Ukraine spilled grain from three Ukrainian trucks on the road. Polish police have launched an investigation.


RBC-Ukraine reported this regarding the Polish TV channel RMF24.

The incident occurred at about 11:30 a.m. Polish time on the highway leading to the Dorohusk checkpoint. According to a representative of the municipal police commandant's office, Ewa Czyż, three trucks driven by Ukrainians entered Poland after the border control, but Polish protesters did not let them go further.

"At one point, they opened the trailers, causing some of the grain to spill onto the road. The drivers turned back towards Ukraine," she said, adding that there were no fights or dangerous situations after that.

Polish law enforcement officers are currently investigating all the details of the incident and seizing evidence. The materials will be sent to the prosecutor's office for legal and criminal examination.

"We are conducting an investigation, establishing the personal data of the persons involved, and interviewing witnesses," said the police spokeswoman.
