The movement of trucks to Ukraine was blocked From the Slovak side.

The Ukrainian State Customs Service reports that unknown persons from the Slovak side, without any warning, blocked the passage of freight transport on the border with Ukraine, traffic was difficult.

“Today, November 21, there may be delays in processing at the Vyshne Nemecke – Uzhgorod checkpoint on the border with Slovakia. This is primarily due to the fact that on the Slovak side, unknown persons blocked the movement of freight transport without any warning. So far, the adjacent side “did not officially notify the Ukrainian one about the possible blocking of the border, and also whether Polish truckers and Slovak carriers joined the blockade,” a message published on the Telegram channel of the customs service says.

 


Earlier, the head of the Union of Road Carriers of Slovakia, Stanislav Skala, reported that the association briefly blocked the checkpoint on the border with Ukraine to support its Polish colleagues, who are demanding the restoration of the previously canceled permit system for Ukrainian commercial carriers.

About two weeks ago, Polish carriers blocked automobile 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.


Truck traffic is difficult at three checkpoints on the border with Poland due to a strike by Polish carriers. In particular, we are talking about the checkpoints “Korcheva – Krakovets”, “Grebnoye – Rava-Russkaya”, “Dorogusk – Yagodin”. Polish carriers have blocked the access roads to checkpoints with their vehicles and are only allowing passenger vehicles, buses, and humanitarian and military cargo through. They let the rest of the trucks through at a rate of one per hour.
