Poland Races to Help Ukraine Export Looming Wheat Harvest

WARSAW — With just weeks until Ukraine’s wheat harvest begins in earnest, Poland is trying to speed up the flow of grain from its war-torn neighbor, scouring Europe for spare wagons and containers and throwing new customs agents at a truck-clogged border and posting political ones Leaders to distant lands desperate for new supplies from Ukraine.

The collective effort, described by Polish and Ukrainian officials and trucking companies, is an attempt to help Ukraine export its wheat by land and bypass Russia’s naval chokedown on Ukraine’s Black Sea shipping lanes. At best, Poland expects to receive and ship on a third of the 4.5 million tons that Ukraine would export monthly in peacetime, according to Poland’s agriculture minister Henryk Kowalczyk said Thursday. That would be twice as much as is currently being moved through Poland.
