Polish farmers continue to block the movement of trucks to border crossings on the Polish-Ukrainian border, allowing only a few trucks to pass.

About 2,300 trucks are currently waiting in line, said Andrii Demchenko, a spokesperson for Ukraine’s State Border Guard Service, the CFTS portal reports, citing the Ukrinform news agency.

"As before, there are blockades at six border crossings. As of this morning, 2,300 trucks are waiting to enter Ukraine," Demchenko said.

He added that Polish protesters have not allowed any trucks to cross in either direction at the Shehyni border crossing since Friday. According to him, it was reported on Monday that the protesters had decided to allow 12 trucks to cross into Ukraine every 12 hours. Thus, 60 trucks crossed the border in both directions. Demchenko noted that these are extremely low numbers.

According to him, Polish farmers are not allowing vehicles from Ukraine to enter Poland through the Yahodyn border crossing. They are allowing vehicles from Poland to pass through very slowly: the day before, only 70 trucks traveling in that direction were allowed through.

Cars and buses are crossing the border freely everywhere, and there are no restrictions on car and bus traffic on the other side of the border.

However, the queues of trucks caused by the blockade of the Polish border are growing at other border crossings. As of this morning, over 2,000 trucks are queuing at other sections of the border.

"We see queues of trucks heading to Ukraine in three directions: opposite the Uzhhorod border crossing on the border with Slovakia, about 600 trucks were waiting this morning; opposite the Tisa border crossing on the border with Hungary, about 1,000 trucks were waiting this morning to enter Ukraine; opposite the Diakove crossing on the border with Romania, over 400 trucks are waiting," Demchenko said.

According to him, there is a lot of traffic at these border crossings, but because of the blockade of the Polish section, drivers and carriers are looking for all possible alternative routes to cross the border.

Demchenko explained that drivers and carriers are bound to a particular border crossing when transporting cargo because they already have documents for the transportation of cargo through a particular customs office. Therefore, according to him, it should be taken into account that the blockade is continuing, and "if earlier we saw in open sources statements that they would block until March 10, now information is being spread that they will continue their actions until April."

"Therefore, I cannot say that this issue will be resolved soon," he said.
