Poland’s policy for issuing permits for international transportation in Ukraine is a great injustice. This was stated by Deputy Minister of economic development and trade of Ukraine Taras Kachka, reports “UKRINFORM”.
“I think it really is economic genocide and outright mockery of the Ukrainian economy”, — said the official, noting that Warsaw is strangling the trade of Ukraine with the European Union.
We are talking about the number of permits for international cargo transportation. Ukraine has requested 200 thousand, but Poland has pre-approved only 160 thousand.
Pitching has promised that Kyiv will speak about this issue, until then, until it is resolved. He noted that it’s not in the bilateral relations, and that the economic relations of the Republic and the European Union applied “conscious harm”.
At the meeting of the Ukrainian-Polish mixed Commission on international road transport at the end of October Ukraine has managed to achieve five thousand permits in addition. Finally, the quota should be set at the meeting of Ministers of infrastructure in both countries, which is tentatively scheduled for late November.
In 2018 Poland has provided Ukraine with 260 thousand permits. In 2019, their number decreased to 160 thousand, though Kiev should at least 230 thousand. Polish negotiators explain their position to the interests of the Polish carriers.
