The prime ministers of Canada and Poland have discussed boosting exports of Ukrainian grain and other crops to the world’s poorest countries to ease protests by farmers in Europe who see the Ukrainian goods as a market threat.
Addressing the protests in Europe against huge imports of cheap Ukrainian grain, Tusk said both leaders see the need for an increase in exports to poorer, hungrier nations elsewhere instead of to European countreis.

Farmers in Poland and elsewhere say food imports from Ukraine are undercutting them, even as European governments support Ukraine in its fight against Russia’s invasion.

“Canada and Poland could radically increase the possibility of the export of Ukraine’s grain to the hunger-stricken, needy nations,” Tusk said.
