The Polish government had previously criticized the EU for allegedly failing to fulfill its promise to export Ukrainian grain to Middle Eastern and African countries. 

As a result, some of the grain exports ended up in neighboring countries, including Poland, resulting in full warehouses and declining prices, sparking protests among farmers.

Under a new European Commission regulation, Poland, Bulgaria and Romania, are to receive EUR 56.3 million in aid for losses caused by the import of Ukrainian grain.

The EC is currently working on a second tranche of support, which is expected to total EUR 75 million, to be divided among five Member States: Poland, Bulgaria, Romania, Slovakia and Hungary.
