Michal Kolodziejczak: we don’t want to put pressure on Ukrainians

Must read

We are talking with farmers about a specific resolution that is currently being prepared. We are still waiting for the relevant processes that will allow this regulation to come into force (…). This is compensation for those who have sold and will sell grain, said Deputy Minister of Agriculture Michal Kolodziejczak.

The Chairman of the Solidarity of Individual Farmers, Tomasz Obszanski, announced that farmers will begin a sit-in at the Ministry of Agriculture. Michal Kolodziejczak confirmed in the “Event Guest” program that negotiations are planned.

Michal Kolodziejczak about “difficult times”

– Times are hard. We are talking with a group of farmers who have an appointment,” he said in an interview with Bogdan Rymanovsky. “There is no person who knows the government better than me.” I understand them, but I also understand the words of Donald Tusk, who clearly said: these are difficult times, even before the war. The next two years will show a lot. And this also shows the complexity and complexity of these problems,” the deputy minister added.

When asked why the border to products from Ukraine has not yet been closed, he replied that Kyiv is now in a more difficult military situation than before, so Poland does not want to “put pressure” on it.

– To be clear, I understand the side of Polish farmers – I know that there is a large group of those who take this issue seriously and know what the relationship between Ukraine and Russia is at the moment, and that these are difficult moments for Ukraine. When we signed the agreements, it was easier for Ukraine. However, these strong attacks from Russia did occur, he said.

He added that he spoke on Tuesday with the Ambassador of Ukraine to Poland Vasily Zvarich. “I wouldn’t want to put the Ukrainian government or the one I’m forming against the wall,” he assured.

What will happen next to Minister Czeslaw Seversky?

Kolodziejczak was also asked to comment on the situation that arose a few days ago during a meeting with farmers. A representative of the Ukrainian Grain Association was photographed in a position in which he appeared to be sleeping. Under the photo they wrote that Kolodziejczak acted nervously and ran out of the room. According to farmers, this behavior led to the inability to reach agreement on problematic issues.

– We have our own strategy, which we adhere to. This is and will be effective,” the deputy minister answered. – I am not offended by Ukrainians.

Michal Kolodziejczak also said that work is underway to regulate subsidies for the sale of cereals.

“We are talking with farmers about a specific resolution that is currently being prepared. We are still waiting for the relevant processes that will allow this regulation to come into force (…). This is compensation for those who sold and will sell grain,” the politician said.

He was also asked about the possible reconstruction of the government and the position of Minister Czeslaw Sekierski. He did not want to speculate about his position in the government, only saying that he “does not think that Agriculture Minister Czeslaw Sekierski will lose his position.”
