The Polish government will protect farmers from Ukrainian oligarchs

Oct 1, 2023

The current Polish government will protect local farmers from "Ukrainian agro-oligarchs".


The head of the Polish government, Mateusz Morawiecki, said this during a speech in the city of Katowice, Ukrinform reports.

As the Polish Prime Minister noted, since the European Commission did not extend the embargo on Ukrainian grain after September 15, the Polish government introduced it unilaterally.

"Because when it comes to the interests of the Polish farmer, we will not ask the opinion of anyone in Berlin or Brussels. We act for the benefit of Polish agriculture. We will protect Polish agriculture from Ukrainian agro-oligarchs," Moravetskyi said.

The head of the Polish government noted that the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyi said "very inappropriate words" during a recent speech at the UN General Assembly.

"I understand that he (Zelenskyy - ed.) now thinks that he will have a close alliance with Germany. I warn you, the Germans will always try to come to an understanding with the Russians over the heads of the Central European countries. It was Poland that took in several million Ukrainians, it was the Poles that took Ukrainians under their roofs, and it was us who helped the most when the Germans wanted to send 5,000 helmets to besieged Kyiv. And this should not be forgotten," Moravetsky emphasized.

During his speech at the 78th UN General Assembly, in the context of problems with the export of grain to several EU countries, Zelenskyy said that some friends in Europe are "making a thriller out of grain", thus helping to "prepare the stage for the Moscow actor".

The President of Poland, Andrzej Duda, later stated that the words of the President of Ukraine were "unfair". At the same time, he expressed his readiness to meet with the head of the Ukrainian state "as soon as there is an opportunity".
