Ukrainian Truck Traffic Restored at Three Checkpoints on Polish Border

The transit of Ukrainian trucks at the checkpoints “Rava-Ruska — Hrebenne” on the border with Poland has been restored for the first time since the beginning of Polish protests in the end of 2023. Truck traffic has resumed apart from those transporting agricultural products, according to the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine (SBGSU).

On April 20th, it was reported that truck traffic at the Polish-Ukrainian border had resumed at the crossing points of “Shehyni-Medyka” and “Krakovets-Korchova”. Polish farmers had concluded their protest actions. Processing and passage of freight vehicles across the border in both directions are being carried out in regular mode, according to SBGSU. It was reported by Ukrainian border guards that over 1,700 trucks were expected to enter Ukraine through these crossing points.

Since the end of last year, the movement of Ukrainian trucks through the Polish border has been blocked due to protests of Polish farmers, who were demanding the introduction of commercial permits for Ukrainian carriers and a reduction in their number to levels that existed before the Russian invasion of Ukraine. The situation experienced a temporary stabilization in January, but on February 20, Polish farmers declared their intention to block all border checkpoints with Ukraine.

Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk has called on Polish farmers to cease the blockade of the border with Ukraine. “I want to appeal to everyone in Poland not to do anything that could harm Ukraine… We must make decisions that will protect the Polish border and border crossings,” said Tusk.
