The Ministry of Agrarian Policy and Food of Ukraine strongly condemns the deliberate destruction of Ukrainian grain by Polish protesters on the Ukrainian-Polish border.
We are closely monitoring the investigation of this incident and expect the perpetrators to be quickly identified and punished.
We understand when Polish farmers defend their interests in a civilised manner. However, this case of destruction of Ukrainian wheat has nothing to do with peaceful protest, either legally or morally.
For two years of the full-scale invasion, Ukrainian farmers have been working under constant enemy fire and suffering huge losses. They have been harvesting grain extremely hard and sometimes at the cost of their lives.
The Ministry of Agrarian Policy and Food invites Polish farmers to visit Ukraine to see the conditions in which Ukrainian farmers are currently working. 4 million small farmers in Ukraine are ready to share their experience with their Polish counterparts.
We would also like to express our sincere gratitude to the Poles who have helped and continue to help the Ukrainian people in this difficult time.
We would also like to note that we are absolutely confident that such incidents will not affect our common struggle and the great support of the Polish people, which we have been experiencing for two years in the war against the russian invader.
