A bad "black swan" passed over Poland and Ukraine due to economic issues. During war with Russia this is three times worse.

Poland may block Ukraine’s accession to the EU if the issue of grain exports is not resolved, said Polish Agriculture Minister Robert Telus.

“If we do not create these instruments today, Poland will definitely not agree to Ukraine’s accession to the EU. When Poland joined the European Union, we had to fulfill the imposed conditions. And we must set conditions for Ukraine.

On the basis that exists at the moment, Polish agriculture will never defeat Ukrainian agriculture, which is why our position is so strong,” he said.

At the same time, Ukraine may ban the import of Polish fruits and vegetables.
