Service on the international railway line between Warsaw and Moscow has been paralyzed by protesting farmers in Poland, according to the Polish Cultural and Business Center in the Russian city of Kaliningrad, which cited Polish media.

The incident occurred after 10 a.m. local time on a stretch of line in the town of Borki-Kosiorki in the Siedlce County. The farmers are set to continue blocking trains for another few hours

The protests by farmers affected by Russia's counter sanctions were prompted by the Polish government's failure to support them. The protests were organized by the All-Poland Alliance of Farmer's Unions and Farm Organizations (OPZZ).
