Polish politician threatens Ukraine with arms export ban

19.09.2023, Warsaw.

Poland may stop Western arms exports to Ukraine in response to Kiev’s ban on imports of Polish agricultural products, Polish politician Sławomir Mentzen wrote on his social network X page on September 19.

“If Ukraine wants to ban imports of Polish fruits and vegetables, we should ask what it thinks about Poland’s ban on arms and ammunition exports to Ukraine,” the politician said.

In his statement, Mentzen also emphasized the lack of Ukraine’s performance on the front expected by the West.

He wrote that “Ukraine is probably doing too well” in a situation of military conflict with Russia “if it wants to start a trade war with Poland.”

Earlier, the EU Commission lifted restrictions on Ukrainian agricultural products in several EU border countries, despite the fact that it was destroying their own food industry in these countries. Slovakia, Hungary and Poland announced that they extended the ban unilaterally. In response, the Kiev regime threatened to file a complaint with the World Trade Organization. Ukrainian Economy Minister Taras Kachka said that they might ban imports of fruit and vegetables from Poland.
