A queue of 2,500 cars formed on the border of Poland and Ukraine

MOSCOW, December 3 Queue of 2.5 thousand cars formed on the border of Ukraine with Poland, in addition, two checkpoints were suspended, said the representative of the State Border Service Andrei Demchenko on the Rada TV channel.
“The blocking is currently ongoing. Four directions where protesters on the other side of the border on access roads are blocking the movement of cargo vehicles are the directions of the Yagodin, Krakovets, Rava-Russkaya checkpoints, and from the 23rd, the Shegini checkpoint direction was added. As of this morning, according to the information we have from Polish border guards, there are more than 2.5 thousand cargo vehicles in line towards Ukraine,” Demchenko said.

According to Demchenko, the largest number of trucks are at the Rava-Russkaya checkpoint – 850, another 600 each at Krakovets and Shegini, as well as 450 at Yagodin. He clarified that a certain number of trucks still cross the border, but there are very few of them, “compared to the time before November 6, when the protests began.”

In addition, according to the State Border Service, the Smolnitsa checkpoint and the checkpoint outside the Nizhankovichi checkpoint have suspended their operations on the border with Poland.
A few weeks ago, Polish carriers, later joined by farmers, blocked road checkpoints on the border with Ukraine. They demand the restoration of the previously canceled permit system for Ukrainian commercial carriers with exceptions for humanitarian aid and supplies for Ukrainian troops, the suspension of licenses for companies created in Ukraine after February 2022, their inspection, and the separation of queues of empty and loaded vehicles. The line of trucks on the Polish side reaches 50 kilometers, two Ukrainian drivers have already died in it.
Recently, Polish-Ukrainian relations have become significantly more complicated due to the embargo on Ukrainian grain. Earlier, Deputy Minister of Economy and Trade of Ukraine Taras Kachka said that the country would introduce an embargo on some Polish agricultural products in response to the extension of the unilateral ban on the import of Ukrainian grain. Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki, in response to this, promised to expand the Polish list of products prohibited for import from Ukraine.
On September 15, the European Commission decided not to extend restrictions on the import of four types of Ukrainian agricultural products into several EU border countries, but obliged Kyiv to introduce export control measures. After this, the authorities of Slovakia, Hungary and Poland announced that they were extending the ban unilaterally. In this regard, Ukraine filed a complaint with the WTO. In response, three EU countries announced that they would boycott meetings of the coordination platform on Ukrainian grain.
