He shared the information on Espreso TV.

"The protesters who are on the territory of Poland continue to block three directions. Speaking from the Ukrainian side, these are the Jagodzin, Rava-Ruska and Krakovets (Krakowiec) checkpoints. At the moment, we are recording more or less intensive traffic at the Krakovets checkpoint in the direction of exit from Ukraine and entry into Poland. There, trucks cross the border intensively, heading from Ukraine to Poland. Other directions of exit and entry from Poland are practically blocked," said the spokesman for the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine.

Andriy Demchenko added that only a small number of trucks can cross the border in these directions, as the protesters continue to block the access roads to the Polish checkpoints. Fortunately, they are not blocking traffic for buses and cars.

Strikes on the border between Poland and Ukraine

Polish carriers were reportedly set to go on strike at the border. The reason is excessive competition after the liberalization of international transport between Ukraine and the EU.

In this regard, the Ministry of Communities, Territories and Infrastructure of Ukraine initiated a meeting with Poland and the European Commission. 

In addition, Ukraine sent an official note to Poland over the intention of Polish carriers to go on strike at the Ukrainian-Polish border. Ukraine’s Ministry of Infrastructure said that the Polish carriers had not submitted any official demands to Kyiv.

On 6 November, Polish carriers went on strike at the Polish-Ukrainian border. As a result, traffic for trucks has been hampered.

As of the evening of November 7, Polish carriers completely blocked the passage of trucks at two checkpoints on the border with Ukraine. Later, it was also reported that trucks were waiting up to 90 hours to enter Ukraine.

On November 9, a meeting was held in Poland between government officials and carriers blocking the border with Ukraine, but there were no results.

On the morning of November 13, queues of cars, buses, and trucks registered in e-cherha - an online queue booking system for crossing the border by international freight carriers - were seen in front of checkpoints with neighboring countries to leave Ukraine.

Also on November 13, Ukraine plans to hold a meeting at the border with representatives of the Polish authorities and carriers to unblock the checkpoints.
