Poland is considering an agricultural trade licensing agreement with Ukraine, similar to the one Kyiv has concluded with Romania and Bulgaria. Reuters writes about this with reference to an official familiar with the issue.
It is reported that in this way Poland seeks to end the dispute with Kiev and stop protests on the border with Ukraine.
As the authors of the publication note, disagreements arose between Kiev and Warsaw over the export of cheap Ukrainian grain through Polish territory to the European Union. As a result, Polish truck drivers and farmers blocked several border crossings.
