Several hundred farmers gathered in the center of Warsaw on Thursday to protest against the lifting of customs duties on agricultural products from Ukraine and rising prices. “Raising interest rates is not the way to fight against inflation,” said the protest organizer and the leader of AgroUnii Michał Kołodziejczak.

Farmers are also dissatisfied with the lifting of customs duties on agricultural products from Ukraine. “We do not agree that Poland is flooded with food imported from abroad, unrecorded, and later very often sold as Polish,” Kołodziejczak said.

Poland’s opposition leader Tusk recently warned that the transit of Ukrainian grain poses "unexpected competition" for Polish farmers, which should worry them. “Unfortunately, from the point of view of Polish farmers, this means that some of these cereals will be sold here in Poland at significantly lower prices,” he said.
