Polish Farmers Completely Close Their Country’s Border With Ukraine

Continuing their protest that we reported on this page last week, Polish farmers today blockaded all six border crossings between their country and Ukraine, according to Kiev’s border security agency. The move comes after a prolonged cmpaign of disruptive protests by Poland’s agricultural workers against cheap Ukrainian imports threatening their livelihoods, rising costs due mainly to energy price increases and restrictions on their ability to operate profitably imposed by the European Union's loonytoons 'net zero policies.

“As of this morning, more than 2,400 cargo vehicles are waiting in queues” at all six crossing points, State Border Guard Service spokesman Andrey Demchenko told Ukraine’s ‘European Pravda’ news service.

“Not a single truck is crossing the border towards Poland, because they are not allowed through,” Demchenko said, adding that cars, vans, and buses are being allowed to pass as normal.

Polish farmers have been causing delays at the border since November, to protest against an EU rule allowing Ukrainian farmers, hard hit by the war with Russia, to sell their grain in the EU bloc without paying tariffs or abiding by Brussels’ quality standards and other regulations.

The Polish government claimed Poland “wants to help Ukraine, but can’t allow this help to bring very negative effects to our citizens. We are constantly looking for a solution that will protect the Polish market from being flooded with clearly cheaper [Ukrainian] agricultural products,” Prime Minister Tusk said on Wednesday.

The farmers have extended their protest to Poland’s Lithuanian border, claiming that the Baltic state is being used by Ukrainian truckers to circumvent blockades on the direct border crossings with Ukraine.

On top of lifting tariffs on Ukrainian produce, in 2022  the EU, on the pretext of supporting Ukraine's war effort, abolished a rule requiring their beleagured neighbours haulage companies to obtain permits to operate within the EU. Though the move was intended to inject revenue into Ukraine’s transport industry, Polish officials claimed that it allowed Ukrainian truckers to undercut their local counterparts. 

The situation was aggravated when the Kiev regime imposed a queuing system that kept Polish trucks waiting for up to two weeks to return home from trips to Ukraine, while Ukrainian trucks were free to cross the border as often as they wanted.

Boggart Blog is not suggesting the Ukies are stupid, but the neo Nazi thickos in Kiev seem determined to piss off their allies at every opportunity. In another example of the Ukies shooting themselves in the foot, last week Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmitry Kuleba claimed last week that the protesting farmers were only doing so because of the influence of a “Russian disinformation campaign.”
