The State Border Service of Ukraine has said Slovak transporters blocked the Vyšné Nemecké checkpoint, which is adjacent to the Ukrainian checkpoint Uzhhorod, at 4.05 p.m. today.
The protest is organized by the Slovak Union of Carriers.
"It is known that the movement of humanitarian aid, other important goods, live animals, fuel and refrigerated cargo will not be blocked. The rest of the cargo leaving Slovakia will be allowed in limited quantities, four trucks per hour," the border service said.
Traffic entering Slovakia will not be blocked. The movement of cars and buses will not be restricted either.
Slovak transporters say that their goal is to preserve thousands of jobs in transport and logistics.
