Farmers have blocked another border crossing point on the Romanian-Ukrainian border: what is happening
On January 18, Romanian farmers used agricultural machinery to block the Halmeu-Dyakove checkpoint, leading to a temporary suspension of truck traffic leaving Ukraine.
The State Customs Service of Ukraine's press service reported the incident, stating that the Romanian side had informed them about the farmers using large agricultural machinery to block truck movement in front of the international checkpoint at Halmeu-Dyakove.
Truck traffic departing from Ukraine has been temporarily halted to prevent the obstruction of car passage. The duration of the blockade remains unknown at this time.
As of the latest update, approximately 10 trucks are waiting to leave Ukraine, and there are 607 vehicles in the queue. Over the past day, 138 trucks were cleared for departure from Ukraine, while 105 trucks were permitted to enter the country.
It's worth noting that the border crossing points between Ukraine and Poland are fully operational, as protesters (carriers) have ceased their actions. Following the unblocking of the Yagodyn-Dorogusk, Krakivets-Korchova, and Rava-Ruska-Hrebenne checkpoints, Ukrainian border guards cleared 2,550 trucks per day.
OBOZ.UA previously reported that despite the blockade of the Ukrainian border by Poland, the dynamics of vehicle imports at regional customs offices have not undergone significant changes. However, clearances at some other customs offices, such as Volyn Customs, have increased since the beginning of the year. During the lockdown, there was a decrease in the number of cars imported in large carriers.
