Details: The colonel said the longest queue in front of the Yahodyn checkpoint comprises 1,100 trucks, with the rest heading towards Krakivets and Rava-Ruska.


The spokesperson noted that the protesters let several vehicles through in all directions every hour.

"The only more or less intense traffic we see is at the Krakivets checkpoint for trucks travelling from Ukraine to Poland," said Demchenko.

The total number of vehicles waiting to cross the border from Poland to Ukraine has steadily remained at 2,400-2,500 over the past few days.

"At the same time, hauliers are choosing other routes, and we have been observing a cluster of trucks opposite the Shehyni checkpoint for several days now. About 1,100 trucks are there," Ukraine’s State Border Guard Service said.
