“In a joint statement, we consolidated the results of our several weeks of work with the Polish side. The measures envisaged by the statement will significantly simplify the border crossing of our cargoes with grain and, accordingly, speed up and increase exports, which is a priority of the Ministry of Agrarian Policy at the moment.”
Special attention was paid to the issue of transit through the Republic of Poland of Ukrainian animal products of the categories not permitted under EU requirements (pork, beef, lamb, a number of aquaculture products, etc.). The competent authorities must develop a mechanism for the safe and effective control of the transit of such goods and obtain the permission of the European Commission.
