This is reported by PAP.

"After 2:00 p.m, the train left for Gdańsk," said the main municipal police department in Bydgoszcz. 

Corn was left near the tracks, which was unsuitable for loading into the cars because of the mud.

The company that organizes transport security said that the grain scattered in Kotomezh near Bydgoszcz was being transported from Ukraine to Morocco.

"Eight out of forty railcars were opened. The cars were definitely opened by third parties. The 8 mm thick customs ropes were cut. Thus, the double side doors of the cars were opened," said a representative of the company that organizes transport security. 

He added that when the doors were opened, half of the goods fell out of the car.

"Between 160 and 180 tons were spilled. About 30 tons remained on the ground. It is being weighed at customs and secured for further recycling or sale for biogas," the statement says.

A case of destruction of property has been opened in Poland over the incident. 

"We hope that this will not happen again, and now the relevant services will control such transports," said the deputy head of the Dobrz Commune.

  • On the night of February 24-25, unidentified persons dumped Ukrainian corn from 8 railroad cars at a railway station in Poland. It was a transit cargo that was supposed to go to other countries from the port in Gdansk.
