Romanian farmers continue blockade of Ukrainian border: queue of trucks grows
Two checkpoints Porubne-Siret and Krasnoilsk-Vicovu de Sus on the Ukrainian-Romanian border remain blocked for truck traffic
Assistant Head of the Chernivtsi Border Guard Detachment, Lieutenant Colonel Ihor Zarudniev, said this in a comment to molbuk.ua.
As noted, the checkpoints on the Romanian side have been blocked for the last three days. In particular, the blockade of Porubne-Siret began on January 13, and Krasnoilsk-Vicovu de Sus on January 15.
According to the border guards, the queue of trucks is growing due to the blocking of the checkpoints.
"Two checkpoints on the Romanian side have been blocked for almost a day - since January 16 - and not a single truck has been allowed to pass. Currently, there are 1,100 vehicles in the e-queue at the checkpoint, and 60 empty vehicles at the checkpoint in Krasnoilsk," emphasized Zarudniev.
