Kołodziejczak's statement after the meeting with farmers.  He announced big changes

Michał Kołodziejczak announced after the meeting with farmers that the European Commission would most likely decide to depart from some of the regulations proposed in the Green Deal.

Minister of Agriculture Czesław Siekierski and his deputy Michał Kołodziejczak accompanied Donald Tusk during a meeting with representatives of protesting farmers. The Prime Minister was to commit to further negotiations with the European Commission regarding the Green Deal. He emphasized that the final move in this matter rests with the European Commission and decisions are to be made on March 15.

Tusk's meeting with farmers. What was agreed?

The deputy head of the Ministry of Agriculture clarified in a conversation with journalists that Brussels would most likely agree to changes in the Green Deal. – There is a high probability of abandoning these most harmful regulations. The most controversial thing is fallowing, we have a lot of indications that there will be a departure – said Michał Kołodziejczak.

At the same time, the politician emphasized that “withdrawing these regulations is not that easy and one prime minister or one government will not be enough.” – I'm saying it clearly, I won't throw words into the wind. A year ago, a minister in the PiS government assured about subsidies, but there were none. We could also go out and make promises, which would make people happy in the short term. We are a government that takes this matter very, very seriously, the deputy minister of agriculture told journalists.

Inflow of products from Ukraine. Kołodziejczak Declaration

Michał Kołodziejczak emphasized that Poland must limit the inflow of food products from Ukraine, and the Ukrainian side must understand that this will also be beneficial for them in the context of relations with our country. – We are also talking about the order in which approximately 4.5 million tons of grain will be removed from the market. This is needed to enter the new season with a clean slate. There will be funds for this. We are the first government to propose such a solution. This will be a very difficult conversation, we have certain financial frameworks that we must adhere to – explained the deputy minister.

Declarations regarding the removal of grain were confirmed by one of the representatives of the protesting farmers. – The Prime Minister said he would not close the border. However, it will remove the surplus of grain from Poland. If there is a surplus of grain, but it continues to flow from Russia and countries outside the European Union, this will be a problem, said Andrzej Sobociński.
