Ukraine plans to create nine more checkpoints on the border with the countries that are part of the European Union, the largest of which is with Poland, Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal said.
"There are plans to create nine more checkpoints and modernize 13," he said.
In particular, Shmyhal clarified, it is about the network of automobile checkpoints.
"There is an agreement that Ukraine will receive a soft loan of EUR 160 million from Polish partners for the renewal of roads, checkpoints, and the purchase of scanners," the prime minister said.
Currently, there are 21 of them functioning on the border with the EU. Three of them were opened already during the full-scale war.
