Polish Farmers Lift Long Blockade Of Ukraine Border

Polish farmers have called off their protest at the last border crossing with Ukraine, lifting a blockade that had dragged on for months, soured bilateral relations, and buffeted Ukraine's trade, France 24 reported.

The farmers had been blocking border crossings with Ukraine since February 2024 to protest what they say is unfair competition from goods from Ukraine.


Polish truckers, later joined by farmers, had blocked border crossings with Ukraine since late autumn last year amid concerns over unfair competition and cheap grain.



They cited government inaction over a loss of business to foreign competitors since Russia's war on Ukraine, with truckers from Ukraine exempt from seeking permits to cross the Polish border. Ukraine's border guard spokesman said Polish farmers had ended the blockade at the Rava-Ruska crossing on Monday morning.
