Despite Polish farmers' protests, there were no delays in delivering weapons or humanitarian aid to Ukraine, says Ukrainian Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal at a press conference.

"It is very important that despite protests of Polish carriers and farmers, there have been no cases of blocking the delivery of weapons, military equipment, humanitarian aid, or fuel to Ukraine. All these cargoes are flowing smoothly into Ukraine. This is important to avoid manipulation," says the head of the government.

According to him, all the cases that are "loudly inflated" on Telegram do not include military equipment as these are commercial vehicles in various forms.

"Therefore, it is important that no cargo officially registered as military or humanitarian aid has been stopped," Shmyhal added.


Polish farmers have been blocking the border with Ukraine for several weeks. They have complicated the movement of trucks through border crossings, affecting Ukrainian exports and imports.

On February 22, Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk said that Poland had found a solution to ensure protests do not affect the speed of delivering military equipment to Ukraine. Border crossings and border sections of roads and railways have been added to the list of critical infrastructure objects.

Thus, weapons and humanitarian aid are being transported across the border without obstacles.
