After 1:00 p.m. local time, a gradual blockade of cargo transport commenced in the direction of the border checkpoints at Yahodyn-Dorohusk, Krakovets-Korchova, and Rava-Ruska-Hrebenne. Border guards report disruptions in cargo vehicle traffic at these three major border crossing points, both for entry into Poland and exit.

The protest’s organizers intend to permit the passage of one cargo vehicle per hour, with exceptions for cargo vehicles carrying goods of a security or humanitarian nature, those transporting animals, perishable products, and the like.

Previously, it was reported that Polish transporters planned to initiate a strike at the Ukrainian border, but later, the start of the blockade was postponed for several days.
