The European Commission has agreed to ban imports of sunflower oil from Ukraine, but the transit of this product will be allowed, RMF FM has reported.
"We will not abandon the steps we have taken at this stage if we do not receive the appropriate tools to ensure that Polish farmers will be safe when it comes to issues related to trade, the flow of goods from Ukraine to Poland," Agriculture Minister Robert Telus said.
Earlier, the European Commission agreed to ban imports of wheat, corn, rapeseed and sunflower seeds.
Poland also wants to ban imports from Ukraine of flour, honey, sugar, soft fruit (frozen), eggs, meat (especially poultry), milk and dairy products, as well as apple juice and apple concentrate.
The European Commission has proposed €100 million in support for farmers, of which Polish farmers will receive almost €40 million. Farmers can also receive another €80 million from the Polish state budget.
