The opening of the Uhryniv checkpoint is the first step in a list of measures to unblock the border, reduce queues and increase the capacity of the Ukrainian-Polish border.

Ukraine hopes that this will allow the blockade to be lifted as soon as possible and provide uninterrupted traffic across the border with Poland.
