Details: Lorry traffic in both directions has been blocked at the road border crossing since 09:00 on Sunday morning.

Polish farmers are holding a large-scale protest on the access roads to Dorohusk. 

The State Customs Service noted that, despite the protesters' promises to let perishable, dangerous, or humanitarian goods through, no lorries have crossed the border since then.
