Queues on Polish-Ukrainian border have sharply decreased - ambassador

16:49 14 September Kyiv, Ukraine

On the Polish-Ukrainian border, the queues of trucks at the Dorogusk-Yagodin checkpoint, through which trucks pass, have significantly decreased.

This was announced by the Ambassador of Ukraine to Poland Vasily Zvarych on Facebook on Wednesday, September 14.

He noted that this morning he visited this section of the border and assessed the situation.
"Compared to the previous visit to this checkpoint, on September 10, there is a noticeable positive trend towards a gradual reduction in queues on both sides of the border.. If on September 10 there were about 2,800 trucks in line from the Ukrainian side, and 900 from the Polish side, today there are 1,900 from the Ukrainian side, and 190 from the Polish side," the diplomat said.
According to him, over the past day, more than 600 trucks were issued by Polish services from Ukraine to Poland at the Dorogusk-Yagodin checkpoint.

Zvarych believes that the decision to send empty trucks to the neighboring Ustilug-Zosin checkpoint "justifies itself."

The ambassador also said that in the near future another checkpoint on the border with Poland, Nizhankovichi-Malchowice, would open.

He assured that all the relevant authorities of Ukraine and Poland are cooperating with each other in order to further improve the situation on the border.
