In Poland, unknown persons damaged Ukrainian agricultural products. The attackers opened three grain trucks and dumped their contents, according to Minister of Communities, Territories and Infrastructure Development Oleksandr Kubrakov.

"This morning, unknown persons damaged Ukrainian agricultural products at the Dorohusk (Poland) railway station. Three grain trucks with rapeseed were opened," he says.

According to the Minister, it was a transit cargo bound for Germany (Hamburg).

"I will only say that unpunished crimes always return. Whether it is military aggression or damaged grain. Criminals must be punished so that others are not tempted to repeat them," he says.

For its part, Ukrzaliznytsia says it is preparing a corresponding appeal to the Polish law enforcement agencies regarding the incident.

Border blockade

In February, protests on the Polish-Ukrainian border resumed. Checkpoints are blocked by farmers, and recently, they announced a "total blockade" of the border and began pouring out Ukrainian grain.

The day before, President Volodymyr Zelenskyy held a conference call on the situation at the border and then invited Polish President Andrzej Duda and Prime Minister Donald Tusk to meet at the border.

Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk announced that a meeting between the two governments would take place on March 28 in Warsaw.

Later, Tusk said he would meet with European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen. They will discuss the blockade of the border with Ukraine by Polish farmers.
