In an interview with Interfax-Ukraine, Ukraine's Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba emphasized that the "grain war" between Ukraine and Poland is not beneficial to either country. The government is committed to a constructive resolution of the situation with the export of Ukrainian agricultural products.
"History, the future and security simply leave us no choice but to overcome this crisis. We did not create this crisis, and we are absolutely determined to end it. Emotions are running high. The temperature may still rise until October 15, the day of the elections in Poland. But we are determined to be constructive," the Foreign Minister said.
He emphasized that Ukraine has sent clear signals to Poland that it is ready for a constructive resolution of the conflict and that "there are no unsolvable problems."
Kuleba emphasized: "We do not need this grain war and neither does Poland."
The minister noted that such problems can be solved if there is a mutual desire and focus on constructive dialogue: "We have such a desire."
"Let me remind you that at the beginning of the crisis this spring there were five countries that imposed restrictions. Now Bulgaria and Romania have found a solution, while the other three countries have not. The reason why they haven't is obviously not because there are no solutions. There are some other reasons why these solutions are not found," Kuleba said.
