Tensions grow as 160 tons of Ukrainian grain destroyed in Poland

Around 160 tons of Ukrainian grain was destroyed at a Polish railway station in what a senior Ukrainian official said on Sunday was “the fourth case of impunity and irresponsibility.”

The grain was en route to the port of Gdansk and then to other countries, and this is the fourth case of vandalism at Polish railway stations, Ukraine’s infrastructure minister Oleksandr Kubrakov said on Sunday.

“Those who have damaged Ukrainian grain must be found, neutralized, and punished,” Kubrakov said.

“Such planned demonstration videos and comments have similarities with the Russian hybrid war.”

The Polish police have already taken procedural steps on the spot, Kubrakov noted, adding that the police commissariat in Bydgoszcz is handling the case.

The Embassy also sent a note demanding to find and punish the guilty.

Ukraine’s infrastructure minister Oleksandr Kubrakov posted on X photographs of mounds of destroyed Ukrainian grain.

In accordance with Kubrakov all these agricultural products are transported in sealed railcars and are in transit to other countries.

“How long will the government and the Polish police allow this vandalism to continue?” he wondered.
