Details: Reports say that at around 09:00 on 23 February, unidentified individuals damaged rapeseed in three grain hopper cars destined for transit through Poland to Hamburg. Photos posted by Oleksandr Kubrakov, Deputy Prime Minister for Restoration of Ukraine and Minister for Communities, Territories and Infrastructure Development, indicate that the cargo was partially spilled onto the tracks.

The announcement mentioned that Ukrzaliznytsia (Ukrainian Railways) is preparing to file a complaint with the law enforcement agencies of Poland.

Quote: “I will only say that unpunished crimes always return. Whether it is military aggression or damaged grain. Criminals must be punished so that others are not tempted to repeat them (crimes – ed.),” commented Kubrakov.


  • The previous incident involving spilled grain on the railway occurred on 20 February near the Medyka-Shehyni checkpoint. Farmers spilled some grain from a freight train onto the tracks.

  • The first such incident involving grain occurred with trucks that were supposed to transit wheat through Poland at the Dorohusk checkpoint earlier this month. The actions of the protesters at that time are being investigated by the prosecutor’s office, and the Polish government has apologised for this incident.
