Ukraine simplifies logistics for humanitarian, military assistance

Minister of Infrastructure Oleksandr Kubrakov announced that Poland, Bulgaria, Georgia, Romania, and Turkey have already confirmed their readiness to allow Ukrainian vehicles to pass without international permits.

"Poland, Bulgaria, Georgia, Romania and Turkey have already confirmed their readiness to allow Ukrainian vehicles to pass without international permits, which simplifies the logistics of humanitarian and military-technical assistance to Ukraine. We have agreed with the border guards that the drivers of trucks delivering aid to Ukraine will be allowed to cross the state border," the minister said.

According to him, truck drivers who want to help the country can do so. To do this, you need to contact the embassies of Ukraine or the government-designated hubs for humanitarian aid.

"Ukrzaliznytsia's evacuation train journeys are currently being carried out from hotspots to large transport hubs. In particular, diesel trains on the route Lviv - Kovel - Yahodyn - Kholm were launched today. All current information on flights is available on the media resources of the Ministry of Infrastructure and Ukrzaliznytsia. Women, children, people with disabilities, and the elderly can reach the border with our western partners. Ukrzaliznytsia also helps foreign nationals staying in Ukraine. Everyone who has a passport from other countries can leave the territory of our state without restrictions. That also applies to men aged 18 to 60," Kubrakov assured. 

He also reminded that Ukraine had already reached an agreement with Poland, Germany, Slovakia, the Czech Republic and Austria on the free travel of Ukrainian refugees on the railways of these countries. Ukravtodor is also systematically working on the formation of "green corridors" on the roads of Ukraine, which should ensure the movement of goods, evacuation of people and at the same time hinder the enemy.

"We are dismantling road signs on all roads in the country. Priority № 1 - signposts, names of settlements. Important: all signs are passed to local authorities or road workers. We will return them to their place after the withdrawal of the aggressor's troops from Ukraine," he added.

Ukrposhta resumes operations every day. 

"All branches in large cities and district centers work on a schedule (except those in the war zone). In the villages, traffic is restricted to allow pensions and subsidies to be paid on March 5. All information about the opening hours of branches is now updated on the site. Also, tonight, the first Ukrposhta car after the war crossed the border in Poland. By the end of the week, we plan to resume exports as much as possible. We are also updating the main routes (in test mode), which will connect east and west. If everything goes well, we will expand these corridors," the minister promised.
