Poland has reached an agreement on restarting transit of Ukrainian grains through its territory beginning April 21, Polish Agriculture Minister Robert Telus said on Tuesday, adding transits would be monitored and sealed, Reuters reports.

Pressure has been mounting on the European Union (EU) to find a solution after Poland and Hungary announced bans on some imports from Ukraine, with other countries in eastern Europe saying they are also considering action.

Low-price Ukrainian grain has been flooding the EU market since the beginning of the Russian invasion into that country and farmers in countries bordering Ukraine were demanding action.

Ukraine had said its priority was to reopen transit through Poland, with Telus telling Reuters that they created mechanisms to ensure not "a single ton of grain will remain in Poland."
