Dec 5, 2023

Slovak carriers unblocked traffic for trucks through the Vysne Nemecke checkpoint on the border with Ukraine on the evening of December 4.

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

"On December 4, at 10.00 p.m., the actions of the protesters who blocked the movement of trucks through the Vysne-Nemecke checkpoint ended," the border guards said.

It is noted that the vehicles are currently being cleared following the established procedure.

Also, according to the State Border Guard Service, due to the complicated traffic on the Polish border, the number of trucks choosing this direction to cross the border with Ukraine has increased on the border with Slovakia.

As of the morning of December 5, 625 trucks were waiting in line in Slovakia to cross into Ukraine.

As a reminder, on Friday, December 1, Slovak carriers started blockading the border with Ukraine. It happened at the Vysne Nemecke-Uzhhorod checkpoint. The carriers were letting four vehicles leave for Ukraine per hour.

Yesterday, Ukrainian Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal held talks with Slovak Prime Minister Robert Fico. One of the topics of discussion was an agreement on control at checkpoints.
