Polish Minister of Internal Affairs and Administration Marcin Kierwiński promised that the police will not allow protesting farmers on tractors into Warsaw.

Polish farmers are planning a major protest in Warsaw on Wednesday. Some of them intended to come to the capital on their tractors.

“Tractors will not drive through the city center, because there is a ban. The law will be respected,” Kerwinski said.

“Everything is clear on this issue. The police will comply with the law,” the head of the Ministry of Internal Affairs emphasized.


On February 9, a nationwide protest of farmers began.

They are protesting throughout the country, blocking roads and entrances to checkpoints on the border with Ukraine. At border crossings, unknown persons have already spilled grain from Ukrainian trucks and railway cars several times. At the end of March, the March to Warsaw, organized by trade unions of agricultural workers, took place in the Polish capital. The next farmers’ protest will take place in Warsaw on Wednesday.


The main demands of the protesters are to stop the import of agricultural products from Ukraine to Poland and abandon the environmental plans of the European Union (the so-called Green Deal), which involves achieving zero emissions into the atmosphere by 2050.
