“The Polish side offers literally from tomorrow to cut our agreements to treat all goods the same — the cargo of a United Europe. This does not comply with the agreement. We are ready to discuss changes to the agreement, but the modification of the intergovernmental agreement is usually about a year. We stated the Polish side that they are ready for the dialogue, but you can’t put ultimatums and block traffic”, — said Asaul.
