Feb 12, 2024

Polish farmers blocked two more checkpoints on the border with Ukraine. They also continued the protest at the Medyka-Shehyni checkpoint.

This is reported with reference to the Ukrainian State Border Guard Service.

"Polish farmers started protests at two more checkpoints and blocked Shehyni again," the report says.

Zosyn-Ustyluh checkpoint

Thus, today at 10.10 a.m., protests of Polish farmers began near the Zosyn-Ustyluh checkpoint.

"The protesters intend to let 3 trucks through per hour," the border guards added.

Cars, buses, humanitarian aid vehicles, and vehicles up to 3.5 tons in both directions will be cleared as usual.

Uhryniv-Dolhobuchiv checkpoint

Also, according to the State Border Guard Service, traffic near the Uhryniv-Dolhobychuv checkpoint is blocked.

"The protesters intend to let 2 trucks per hour in both directions," the statement said.

Medyka-Shehyni checkpoint

In addition, the blocking at the Medyka-Shehyni checkpoint has resumed. It is planned to let 1 truck per hour, although the protest will not apply to passenger cars and buses.

On February 9, Polish farmers blocked three checkpoints on the border with Ukraine, which hampered the movement of trucks and trains. Later it became known that they had unblocked one of the checkpoints on the border with Ukraine, the Shehyni-Medica checkpoint.

As a reminder, on November 6, 2023, Polish carriers had started strikes on the border with Ukraine. But on January 17, 2024, the Polish government signed an agreement with the carriers to unblock the border with Ukraine. As part of the agreement, the parties agreed to suspend protests at the entrances to the three border crossing points until March 1.
