We are governed by fraudsters who have deceived the Polish countryside, who do not know what they are doing and who have not guaranteed food security for Poland, said Władysław Kosiniak-Kamysz, president of the Polish People’s Party in Maszkienice. He emphasized that PSL demanded an immediate blocking of the possibility of uncontrolled flow of agricultural products to Poland from Ukraine.

Wladyslaw Kosiniak-Kamyszwho met journalists on Saturday at a family farm in Maszkienice (Lesser Poland), argued that the situation with the uncontrolled influx of agricultural products from Ukraine is “one of the biggest scandals of the Third Republic of Poland – the grain scandal, the poultry scandal, the border scandal”.

According to him, this situation happened “through lack of decision, lack of control, stupidity, lack of preparation, lack of knowledge and experience in making decisions.” – This is granda, this is shame and disgrace. We are governed by fraudsters who have deceived the Polish countryside, who do not know what they are doing and who have not guaranteed food security to Poland, said the head of the People’s Party.

As he recalled, PSL already at the beginning of last summer warned against the consequences of an uncontrolled influx of agricultural products from Ukraine. The effect of the actions highlighted by Kosiniak-Kamysz’s party was an increase in the amount of grain imported from outside the European Union from about 30,000 tons per month to 200-300,000 tons and even 400,000 tons per month in December 2022.

Kosiniak-Kamysz: this is a threat not only to food safety

Kosiniak-Kamysz stressed that PSL demanded an immediate blocking of the possibility of uncontrolled flow of agricultural products to Poland from Ukraine. He stressed that this situation does not help Ukraine, but it serves to build a new oligarchy in this country. – This is not aid for Ukraine. Because we say: help for Ukraine – yes, but the destruction of Polish agriculture – no – emphasized the head of the PSL.

He added that his group had presented a draft law on the protection of the Polish countryside, Polish agriculture and consumers, where “deposits must be introduced, transit routes should be established, ports should be opened”. This project – he pointed out – talks not only about cereals, but also about soft fruits and other agri-food products.

– There is a situation where there are no customs duties, but also no border control, no customs and tax control, no checking of what enters Poland. After all, contraband, drugs, and other things could have been smuggled on those trucks that entered Poland in thousands in an uncontrolled way. This is a threat not only to food security, but also to security in its entirety in other areas – assessed Kosiniak-Kamysz.

– This shows the incompetence of this government – they are so proud that a mouse will not get through our border, and thousands of trucks have escaped their attention – added the PSL president.

Kosiniak-Kamysz: we will summon ministers, the prime minister to parliament

According to the leader of the peasants’ party, checking this case by the prosecutor’s office will not have any effect “because ‘their own’ will investigate ‘their own'”, therefore, on the initiative of the PSL, “a special parliamentary team to investigate border scandal, grain scandalthe poultry scandal – scandals in all these areas”.

– From Monday we will summon ministers, the prime minister to parliament (…). We will explain and show who made mistakes. Those who have compromised Poland’s food security must be punished, either in this term or in the next. We are a guarantor of this, we are also a guarantor as a political party (…) of restoring food security in Poland, security of agricultural production, making the countryside a new attractive place for farmers, for agriculture, for food production – noted the president of PSL.

Kosiniak-Kamysz: we expect an immediate stop to uncontrolled grain

– We expect the immediate detention of uncontrolled grain and other agricultural products to Poland. We expect immediate intervention buying and help for farmers who have been affected. We expect payment for stored grain and we expect help in repaying loans – he enumerated.

He also mentioned fertilizer prices. – The price, as union representatives from the nitrogen plant in Puławy told us recently at a meeting in Łęczna, was artificially raised – said Kosiniak-Kamysz.

– It is a great deal that during the war farmers were made money, that the Polish state-owned company Azoty, also located not far from here, having its headquarters in Tarnów, made money from Polish farmers – he added. “It’s a shame and a disgrace to those in charge who made this decision,” he said.

He added that “we expect” from the European Commission and Commissioner for Agriculture Janusz Wojciechowski “immediate designation of ports in Europe from which this grain will flow from Poland.”

“Restoring food security is our number one priority”

PSL – recalled Kosiniak-Kamysz – also submitted a draft act on increasing the share of biocomponents in fuels. – This is a chance to take off the market and to use (…) rapeseed before the start of this year’s rapeseed harvest – he explained.

The PSL leader stressed that in his party’s program food security is one of the three pillars, next to military security and energy security.

– Restoring food security is our number one item on the agenda. Food security for consumers and its producers, as well as making the village a new place of agricultural production, rebuilding the potential of the Polish countryside, making it an attractive place to work and live for young people, and also at a dignified age – this is our program, but also our reason of state. This is not the program of a political party, this is the program of Poland – said Kosiniak-Kamysz.
