Polish farmers stopped blocking truck traffic in front of the Shehyni-Medyka checkpoint on the Ukrainian-Polish border at 11:30 a.m. today, the State Border Service of Ukraine has said.
"According to the information received from the Border Guard of the Republic of Poland, the protest in front of the Shehyni-Medyka checkpoint ended at 11:30 a.m. today," it said. It is known that 220 trucks are waiting to enter Ukraine.
In the morning, a queue of 1,300 trucks formed at the Ukrainian-Polish border due to the renewed strike by Polish farmers.
The day before, Polish farmers announced a strike on 9 February at 10:00 a.m. in the areas bordering the Ukrainian checkpoints of Yahodyn, Rava-Ruska and Shehyni.
The reason for the blockade was the European Commission's decision to extend the full opening of the EU market to Ukrainian products, including agricultural ones, for another year.
