Poland cancels talks with Ukraine over corruption allegations

Polish Deputy Minister of Agriculture Michal Kolodziejczak said that Warsaw has cancelled from the agenda of the agreed negotiations with Ukraine on agricultural issues, because some of the Ukrainian representatives in charge of this area of activity were accused of corruption.

“Negotiations have been interrupted because part of the representatives on their side has been accused of corrupt activities. <…> We planned another round of talks for May 14, but it was cancelled,” Michal Kolodziejczak told Dziennik Gazeta Prawna.

According to the Polish official, “of course”, Poland will not negotiate with Ukrainian representatives who are facing corruption charges. The Polish Deputy Minister of Agriculture did not mention persons from Ukraine who are involved in corruption scandals.

We will remind, earlier the National anti-corruption Bureau of Ukraine brought charges of theft of 94.8 million hryvnias to the former adviser to the Office of the President of Ukraine Artem Shylo for the purchase of electric transformers at inflated prices.
