“Since the very morning, together with Minister Czesław Siekierski, we have talked with the farmers leading the protest. The protest has been suspended, the three main demands will enter the implementation stage in the near future. After the New Year, we sit down at the table to work together on the expected decisions,” Kołodziejczak wrote.

According to information from Economic Truth, farmers agreed to unblock the border and demanded the urgent implementation of three conditions – to provide a subsidy for the purchase of corn; maintain agricultural tax at the current year level; and continue liquidity lending.
