Polish farmers have unblocked two border checkpoints with Ukraine. Movement through them was closed two days ago, according to the State Border Guard Service.

"The movement of trucks at the Shehyni-Medyka and Korczowa-Krakovets checkpoints has been restored," the statement says.

The processing and passage of freight vehicles across the border in both directions are carried out in regular mode.

Border protest

On April 20, after 09:00, Polish farmers ended their protest action in front of these checkpoints, which they began on April 18. Currently, more than 1,700 trucks are waiting to enter Ukraine at these checkpoints.

It is worth noting that Polish farmers have blocked several border checkpoints with Ukraine for a long time on multiple occasions. At one point, 6 out of 9 checkpoints on this route were blocked.

Ukrainian Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal and Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk held a meeting in Warsaw on March 28 against the backdrop of the blockade of Ukrainian checkpoints on the border with Poland. After that, the situation somewhat normalized.
