Poland says will extend ban on Ukraine grain imports


The Polish government on Tuesday agreed to extend a ban on Ukrainian grain imports unilaterally even if the current EU restrictions expire on September 15. "Regardless of the (European) Commission's further decision, we will not open the border to Ukrainian grain after that date," the government said in a statement. The statement said the government was still looking to extend the ban at the EU level but would do so in any case. FRANCE 24's Gulliver Cragg reports.
