Ukraine Sues Poland Over Agricultural Restrictions, So Poland Stops Sending Arms to Ukraine

The EU is a protectionist bloc. It limits the quantity of non-EU agricultural products that are allowed to be sold there. (It also protects France from competition even within the EU.)

The EU had briefly limited the amount of Ukrainian wheat imports allowed to be purchased, but then they suspended those limits, to assist Ukraine's war effort.

But three countries -- Poland, Slovakia, and Hungary -- are feeling the pain of a wheat glut and consequently low income for their farmers. So they decided to ban agricultural imports from Ukraine.

As they previously threatened to do, Ukraine sued Poland, Hungary, and Slovakia over the ban.

Ukraine has filed lawsuits against Poland, Hungary and Slovakia at the World Trade Organization (WTO) over their decision to ban grain imports, in a row that has split the EU and could hurt Kyiv's prospects of joining the bloc.

"It is fundamentally important for us to prove that individual member states cannot ban the import of Ukrainian goods. That is why we are filing lawsuits against them in the WTO," First Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Economy of Ukraine Yuliya Svyridenko said in a statement.

Svyridenko added that the lawsuits, together with pressure from the European Commission and other member countries, "will help restore normal trade between Ukraine and neighboring countries, as well as show solidarity between us."

Yes, Ukraine, lawsuits always bring people closer together. It's what they're known to do.

Now Poland decides that it will help show further solidarity between Poland and Ukraine by ending its program of sending arms to Ukraine.

Just like lawsuits, ending a military alliance also brings people together!

Warsaw has stopped supplying weapons to Kyiv and is focusing on arming itself instead, Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said Wednesday, amid a dispute over Ukraine's agricultural exports.

"We are no longer transferring weapons to Ukraine, because we are now arming Poland with more modern weapons," Morawiecki said in an appearance on Polish television channel Polsat, according to European Pravda. "If you don't want to be on the defensive, you have to have something to defend yourself with," he added, insisting, though, that the move wouldn't endanger Ukraine's security.

Morawiecki's terse comments came as tensions escalated between Kyiv and the EU over the past week, after the European Commission moved to allow Ukrainian grain sales across the bloc, ending restrictions on grain imports which five eastern EU countries originally sought to protect their farmers from competition.

I mentioned earlier that a transgender spokesman (emphasis on man) for the Ukrainian Territorial Defense Forces declared that he and his allies Have a Little List of "Russian war propagandists" and would literally "hunt them down."

A video of a former US soldier-turned-Ukrainian-military-spokesperson went viral on Wednesday after it was posted on X. The trans-identified male, who now goes by Sarah Ashton-Crillo spoke in a threatening tone and seemingly targeted the US:

"Russia hates the truth, that their obsessive focus on a Ukrainian volunteer is simply allowing the light of the Ukrainian nations honesty to shine brightly."

"Next week, the teeth of the Russian devils will gnash ever harder, and their rabid mouths will foam [with] uncontrollable frenzy as the world will see a favorite Kremlin propagandist pay for their crimes."

"And this puppet of Putin is only the first Russia's war criminal propagandists will all be hunted down, and justice will be served as we in Ukraine are led on this mission by faith in God, liberty, and complete liberation."

Correction: Earlier I said he was not an "official spokesman" for Ukraine. Well, actually, he is, or at least an official spokesman for the Ukraine Territorial Defense Forces.

I have to say, I totally buy that this man is a woman. And also, totally not insane.

Days later, this violent freak said that he was proud he'd threatened to hunt down and kill any critics of Ukraine:

Toxic Ma'amsculinity.

Update: It got worse, if you can believe that. JD Vance demanded to know if this murder-minded psychopath had any connection with US intelligence agencies, and if Ukraine authorized him to declare fatwas on critics of Ukraine.

"In recent days, a video has circulated of an individual who claims to be an English-speaking spokesperson for the Ukrainian military. In the video, this individual, Sarah Ashton-Cirillo, looks directly into the camera and threatens physical violence to anyone who circulates 'Russian propaganda'."

"A number of reports purport to offer additional information, much of it unconfirmed, regarding Ashton-Cirillo. I've seen claims this individual is an American, a former intelligence operative in the United States, and an employee of the Ukrainian government...."

Here's how this ugly man responded:

He says he's a "Russian disinformation expert." What a plot twist! I never expected a mentally-ill transgender extremist to turn out to be a self-certified Russian Disinformation Expert!

Let me just say that Ukraine and this transgender have something in common: Shielded from any criticism by the Global Regime and perpetually propandized for, they have come to believe that they can do and say literally anything without consequence.

Well, for this bizarre murder-threatening transgender freak, there are some consequences to announcing that a global jihad murder squad is being assembled to kill wrongthinkers: He got suspended.

Only suspended, though.

Here's TDF's statement:

Ukraine Territorial Defense Forces @TDF_UA

Sep 20

1/3 Statement of the Command of the Territorial Defense Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine regarding some statements of the spokesperson of the TDF, Junior Sergeant Sarah Ashton-Cirillo.

2/3 The statements of JSgt Ashton-Cirillo in recent days were not approved by the command of the TDF or the command of the AFU. When conducting military operations against the aggressor, the defense forces of Ukraine strictly observe the norms of international humanitarian law.

3/3 The command of the TDF will conduct an official investigation into the circumstances of these statements. Appropriate decisions would be taken.
Sergeant Sarah Ashton-Cirillo will be suspended immediately pending the investigation.

I've generally supported Ukraine, not because I love Ukraine but because Russia is a despicable enemy. But I'm becoming more and more disenchanted by the amount of entitlement we see flowing from the Democrat Party Proxy State of Ukraine.

Meanwhile, Rand Paul says he will not vote for any stopgap spending bill that includes aid to Ukraine.

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) announced Wednesday he would not pass any short-term spending package to fund the government that includes additional funding for the Ukrainian war effort, just ten days before the federal government is set to shut down if a deal is not reached.

Congressional leaders are working towards a deal to pass a continuing resolution to keep the federal government funded past September 30. However, there's a debate about whether the continuing resolution will include the additional $24 billion in aid for Ukraine that President Joe Biden is requesting.

Paul wrote an op-ed and spoke about the issue on the Senate floor, declaring the federal government should "not be held hostage for Ukraine funding."

"Today I'm putting congressional leadership & @POTUS on notice that I will oppose any effort to hold the federal government hostage for Ukraine funding," Paul wrote online. "I will not consent to expedited passage of any spending measure that provides any more U.S. aid to Ukraine."
