The end of the Russian-Polish meat war

Russia is planning to lift the ban it imposed on imports of Polish meat products over two years ago. This paves the way for a new partnership agreement between the EU and Russia, which Poland has blocked up to now because of the meat ban. Krystyna Naszkowska comments: "This is the new government's first economic success. While the previous government promised that they would reach an agreement with Russia about lifting the ban, Tusk's government has actually achieved it - and astoundingly quickly. ... Now there's the possibility that the financial situation of the importing companies will improve and the pork surplus will diminish. But above all we'll no longer feel we're being discriminated against on the international market."
