Polish farmers have announced that they will continue protests on the border with Ukraine until April 30, according to relevant a document.

Earlier, the Poles said that the blocking of checkpoints on the border with Ukraine would end on March 10.

According to the document, the protest is scheduled for March 10 at 2:30 p.m. and will last until 2:30 p.m. on April 30.

"The gathering will take place at the intersection of National Road 17 and Provincial Road 867 in front of the border crossing in Hrebenne. The meeting is expected to be attended by 100 people," the statement says.

According to the document, it is about protests at the Hrebenne-Rava Ruska border crossing point.

"The purpose of the public meeting is to eliminate the Green Agreement, which restricts the supply of agricultural products from outside the European Union, in particular from Ukraine," the statement says.

Border blockade with Poland

A few weeks ago, Polish farmers blocked the border with Ukraine. They have hampered the movement of trucks through checkpoints, which affects exports. This situation has arisen because farmers are unhappy with the transit of Ukrainian grain through Poland and fear that it may remain in the country.

Recently, the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine explained the situation on the border with Poland and which checkpoints are completely blocked with no traffic.
