On September 15, the European Commission decided against continuing the temporary measures, which since May limited the free circulation of four Ukrainian agricultural products – wheat, corn, rapeseed, and sunflower – on the territory of Bulgaria, Poland, Romania, Slovakia and Hungary.

Poland, Slovakia and Hungary chose not to comply with the decision of the European Commission and continued the embargo unilaterally.

On Tuesday, Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal warned Poland and Hungary about the intention to impose an embargo in response.

On the same day, a scheduled meeting between the presidents of Ukraine and Poland was canceled in New York.
