Polish farmers, who were the first to block the Ukrainian border, aim to join Polish carriers who are currently on strike.
A group of Polish farmers is planning to join Polish carriers who have been blocking Ukrainian border checkpoints for weeks. Bloomberg reported this on Monday, November 20, citing a statement from one of the organizers of the protest.
It was mentioned that about 100 farmers from the association Devout Village They plan to hold a three-day protest at the Medica checkpoint on Thursday.
“A strike by Polish truckers at the Ukrainian border threatens to spill over into a group of farmers planning to join the protest at the fourth crossing, potentially jeopardizing humanitarian aid to the war-torn country,” the publication record.
The strike by Polish carriers, which has been ongoing since November 6, has left around 20,000 vehicles stranded on both sides of the border, prompting authorities in Kiev to offer help to evacuate stranded drivers. The Poles demand the return of permits for commercial transport for Ukraine.
At the same time, the European Commission said that any re-introduction of permits or quotas for road transport from Ukraine is legally impossible, as it would violate the current agreement between the EU and Kiev.
We remind you that on November 20, the Cabinet of Ministers announced that Polish border carriers will no longer allow humanitarian aid.
Polish lawyers are preparing lawsuits against the protesting carriers
