Janusz Wojciechowski emphasized that currently there are no plans to extend the time frame for providing support in the above-mentioned mode and there are no initiatives of the Member States in this matter. “Mr. Prime Minister, for my part, I am raising this issue as part of the internal work of the Commission, but the voice of Poland is very much needed here, whose farmers are most affected by the economic effects of the war in Ukraine and which has so far benefited most from the possibility of public aid for farmers.” – we read in the content of the document.

Farmers' protests continue. They take place not only in Poland, but also in other European countries. The demonstrators oppose the provisions of the European Green Deal and draw attention to the competition that threatens them due to the import of cheap food from countries with lower production standards than those in force in the European Union.
