As a reminder, on December 18, the blockade of the largest checkpoint on the border between Poland and Ukraine, Yagodyn-Dorohusk, resumed. It may last until spring, and not only Polish carriers but also farmers are going to participate in it. As a result, all four cargo checkpoints on the border between Ukraine and Poland were blocked.

The organizers of the protest plan to let only 1 truck through per hour. At the same time, they inform that vehicles carrying security and humanitarian cargo, as well as those transporting animals, perishable food, etc. will be allowed to pass. The protesters do not plan to interfere with the movement of buses.

As reported by OBOZ.UA, the demands of Polish farmers who joined the blockade of the Polish border are not the same as those of the carriers. The farmers want to ban sugar from Ukraine and get cash payments from their government.
