The Union of Road Carriers of Slovakia (UNAS) has announced that it is ready to completely block the Vysne Nemecke-Uzhhorod border crossing point if the situation with the abolition of the permit system for Ukrainian truckers is not resolved.
He announced this on Facebook.
According to the carriers, they are aware that the way to solve the problem is not easy, but at the same time, they called it unacceptable that the current situation continues to exist.
"That is why UNAS remains in a state of readiness for a strike, and if there is no other alternative to resolve the situation, UNAS is ready to completely block the Vysne Nemecke-Uzhhorod border crossing in both directions," the statement said.
The carriers thanked the Minister of Transport of Slovakia Josef Raj for raising the issue of the abolition of the permit system for Ukrainian carriers and its impact on road transport in Slovakia in Brussels.
"We would also like to thank him for meeting with UNAS representatives on Thursday, December 7, where we will also discuss the impact of this situation and look for solutions to change it," the statement said.
