End of farmers' meeting with Tusk.  "We don't have any next appointments"

After about three hours, the second agricultural summit with the participation of Donald Tusk ended. – We do not have another meeting scheduled – admitted one of the farmers. He also announced the promise made by the Prime Minister.

On Saturday morning, Prime Minister Donald Tusk, Minister of Agriculture Czesław Siekierski and Deputy Minister Michał Kołodziejczak met with representatives of protesting farmers. The head of government announced that he would like to “report” his recent actions. Farmers, however, threatened to intensify their protests if their demands were not met. After about three hours, the talks ended.

– It was immediately said that there would be no agreement, there are certain declarations and actions of the Prime Minister. There are some things we don't agree on. If there is a surplus of grain, but it continues to flow from Russia and countries outside the European Union, it will be a problem, said Andrzej Sobociński, one of the farmers, in a conversation with journalists. – The Prime Minister said he would not close the border. However, it will remove the surplus of grain from Poland, he added.

Sobociński also admitted that the date of the next meeting has not been set, and farmers will “keep an eye on” Tusk and the Ministry of Agriculture.

Another meeting between Tusk and farmers

The previous meeting of the government with farmers took place on February 29. The talks were attended by Prime Minister Donald Tusk, Minister of Agriculture Czesław Siekierski, Deputy Minister of Agriculture Michał Kołodziejczak and leaders of protesting groups. However, trade unionists from NSZZ “Solidarity” of Individual Farmers left after a few minutes. They no longer intend to participate in Saturday's talks. – First, let him apologize to us for beating us, and then for calling us hooligans. He is a bandit – this is what the chairman of the Podlasie Provincial Council of “Solidarity” of Individual Farmers, Andrzej Babul, said about the prime minister in an interview with “Fakt”.

Saturday is also another day of farmers' protest. In the morning, it was blocked, among others. the S7 road near the Żuławy Wschód junction. In an interview with Polsat News, Roman Kondrów, one of the representatives of the protesting farmers, admitted that the protests may be suspended. – The Prime Minister should take into account that we are closing the border with Ukraine. We are the main players in this matter now, we – farmers. I count on good cooperation with the Prime Minister. If there are specifics, we will suspend the protests or give up on them – emphasized the farmer before the meeting with the Prime Minister.
