Warsaw (Puls Biznesu) – The Polish authorities are trying to get in touch with their Ukrainian counterparts during the food fairs in Kiev. Meanwhile, the border officers control Ukrainian exporters in detail.

Despite many letters from Warsaw offering to meet, the Ukrainian authorities failed to reach settlement over the meat exports ban implemented in March by Ukraine for the Polish products. That’s why Poland’s chief veterinary officer Krzysztof Jazdzewski went to the food fairs to Kiev in order to look for a chance to talk with Ukrainian authorities. Today, in revenge for the ban, the Polish border officers very carefully check all Ukrainian products exported to the EU via Poland (mainly honey, instant milk). More and more transports are being held.

“We are teasing Kiev for the time being. When we find a bigger mistake, we’ll announce it out loud”, one of the officials of the Ministry of Agriculture said.

On May 4, an agreement was reached between Poland and Ukraine. Exports from Poland were supposed to be re-launched on May 20. The Polish side promised to introduce a document which would control the way of the transport, and make the owner of bad transports pay for their utilization. However, Andrzej Lepper, the deputy Prime Minister and the Minister of Economy, discovered that the agreement did not include any requirements for the Ukrainian side. He said that the people responsible for it would be punished.
