Threat to Zelensky – Morawiecki: “Never insult the Poles again”


Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki intervenes in the grain dispute with Ukraine. He addressed his warning to Volodymyr Zelenskyi, who, in his opinion, used the wrong tone. Meanwhile, Morawiecki’s superior is busy cleaning up the pile of broken glass.

Poland has reacted sharply to recent statements by the Ukrainian president, who accused Warsaw of “political theater” over the ban on grain exports.

“I would like to tell President Zelensky that he should never insult Poles again, as he recently did in his speech to the United Nations,” the PAP news agency quoted Polish Prime Minister Morawiecki as saying on Friday evening.

Confusion over arms deliveries
The Prime Minister has already threatened Zelensky that he will no longer put together new arms packages for Kiev. The announcement caused unrest among Western partners.

Since then, Polish President Andrzej Duda, who also made a verbal error, has been busy de-escalating the situation. He clarified on Friday that the dispute between Poland and Ukraine over grain imports would not have a significant impact on good bilateral relations.

Poland decided last week to extend the ban on the import of Ukrainian grain. This has put pressure on relations between neighboring countries. Since Russia invaded Ukraine in February 2022, Poland has been considered one of Ukraine’s most loyal allies.

Zelensky sparked outrage when he told the United Nations General Assembly in New York this week that his government was trying to maintain land routes for exports but that the “political theater” surrounding it only helped Moscow.

Minister of Foreign Affairs strives for diplomacy
Polish Foreign Minister Zbigniew Rau wrote in an article for Politico magazine that Poland wanted a strong Ukrainian state with a dynamic economy to emerge from the war. Warsaw will continue to support Ukraine’s efforts to join NATO and the EU.

Both serve Poland’s interests: supporting Ukraine in the fight against the Russian invasion and protecting Polish citizens from unfair economic competition.

Slovakia has reached an agreement with Ukraine
Poland, like Slovakia and Hungary, has imposed national restrictions on Ukrainian grain imports after the European Commission failed to renew a corresponding ban. They argued that cheap Ukrainian agricultural products, mainly intended for transit to the West and ports, are sold locally, harming their own farmers.

Slovakia resolved the dispute on Thursday and agreed on a licensing system with Ukraine.
