Andriy Demchenko, a spokesman for the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine, shared the information on Espreso TV.

"As of now, 5 directions are already blocked. In the morning, the participants of this blockade obstructed the movement of trucks in the directions of the Yahodyn and Rava-Ruska checkpoints. And after 10 am we see that Polish farmers resumed their blockade in the direction of the Shehyni checkpoint and expanded their actions to two more checkpoints: Ustyluh and Uhryniv," said Demchenko.

Over 1,000 trucks are queuing at the Ukrainian-Polish border

Earlier, the spokesman for the State Border Guard Service reported two blocked checkpoints on the border with Ukraine.

"The individuals involved in this blockade are impeding the movement of trucks at the Yagodyn and Rava-Ruska checkpoints. Previously, the Shehyni checkpoint, which was also blocked, has been reopened, allowing traffic to resume. However, there is a possibility that such actions may be reinstated in the future," said Demchenko.

According to him, there are currently 1,050 trucks in line in Poland heading towards Ukraine in the two blocked directions, 400 of which are opposite Rava-Ruska and 650 are opposite Yagodyn.

"Moreover, there is a backlog of approximately 1,000 trucks heading towards the Krakivets checkpoint. While this particular route has not been obstructed, the queue has formed due to blockades in other directions. Drivers and carriers are seeking alternative routes to cross the border," said the spokesman.

He also added that as of this morning, 200 trucks are waiting to cross the border to Ukraine in the direction of Shehyni checkpoint.

"But in the direction of Shehyni and Krakivets, the activity and intensity of traffic for trucks is ensured in accordance with the capacity. Also, in those areas where vehicle traffic is blocked, both cars and buses can cross the border. The traffic for this category of vehicles is not blocked by the protesters," summarized Demchenko.

  • On Friday, February 9, Polish farmers again began protests on the border with Ukraine and set conditions for ending the new blockade.
