Polish protesters did not allow a single truck to cross into Poland through the Yagdyn, Rava-Ruska and Uhryniv checkpoints over the past day. As of this morning, about 600 trucks were queuing at these three blocked checkpoints to enter Poland.

This was announced by the spokesman for the State Border Guard Service, Andriy Demchenko, Ukrinform reports.

According to him, few trucks are also allowed into Ukraine. In particular, farmers did not let any trucks from Poland through Uhryniv. The protesters let a very small number of trucks leave through Yahodyn per day. Over the past day, there were 70 of them, despite the fact that this is the largest infrastructure area for crossing the border by trucks, which is capable of passing about 1,400 trucks in both directions.

The State Border Guard Service also clarified that cars and buses cross the border freely everywhere, and that traffic on the other side of the border is not restricted for this category of vehicles.

In addition, there are still queues at the previously unblocked Krakivets checkpoints of 900 cars and Shehyni checkpoint of 450 cars. However, these areas are experiencing heavy traffic both exiting and entering Ukraine in accordance with the capacity of each checkpoint.
