No reason was given for the restrictions.

Ukraine, a major agricultural producer, used to export most of its goods through seaports, but since the Russian invasion it has been forced to export by train across the western border.

APK-Inform said that restrictions on the movement of goods to Poland through Ihodin were implemented between April 16 and April 18.

There are also restrictions on the transport of grain, oilseeds, grain and other food through Izov to the Polish cities of Hrubeszew and Slawkov.

From April 16, until further notice, there are restrictions on the export of grain and seeds to Romania through the Diakovo and Vadul-Siret crossings, the consulting firm said.

The railway company was not available for immediate comment.

Ukrainian Agriculture Minister Mikola Solski said this week that the ministry’s main task is to find alternative ways to export Ukrainian grain.

The country has millions of tons of various goods available for export.

Solski also said that 1.25 million tons of grain and oilseeds are on commercial vessels stranded in Ukrainian ports and could soon be damaged.

Before the war, Ukraine exported up to 6 million tons of grain and oilseeds per month. In March, exports fell to 200,000 tons.
