There is no seal that a Pole would not break. The best seal is the cash register and the introduction of an entry deposit – assessed Marek Sawicki, former Minister of Agriculture, MP of PSL, in “Rozmowie Piaseckiego” on TVN24. He commented on the Polish-Ukrainian grain agreement.

After yesterday’s meeting of the Polish and Ukrainian sides regarding grain from Ukraine, the Polish Minister of Agriculture, Robert Telus, announced that the transit of Ukrainian goods through Poland is to be unblocked from Thursday to Friday, and grain transports from Ukraine passing through Poland will be escorted and monitored.

Sawicki: the best seal is the cash register

Konrad Piasecki’s guest on Wednesday was PSL MP Marek Sawicki, Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development in 2007-2012 and 2014-2015, who was asked whether these decisions would solve the problem of Ukrainian grain remaining in Poland. – Of course it won’t. There is no seal that a Pole wouldn’t unsealed, so talking about seals and convoys is just gibberish – he replied.

– It must be made clear that the best seal is the cash register and the introduction of an entry deposit, which we proposed in the act in July last year, an entry deposit of PLN 1,000 per ton, collected at the Polish-Ukrainian border, released upon leaving the customs zone of the European Union, is the best a mechanism that blocks any spreading of products – he described.

He also claimed that “if Poland introduced this deposit, I assure you that other countries would also introduce it and it would not be a Polish incident at all.”

Sawicki stated that “the problem is that in July last year, the (EU) Commissioner and the Minister of Agriculture claimed that the deposit was not in line with EU law.” – And today they blocked the border and, citing the same regulations, they say that such a deposit can be introduced, in accordance with section 32 of the 2004 Act and in accordance with section 12, at a time when we have a threat to safety and health in sector, we can introduce a total import ban,’ he noted.
