Blockade of Yagodin-Dorohusk crossing on Ukraine-Poland border lifted - Ukrainian deputy PM

MOSCOW. Dec 11 (Interfax) - Polish haulers have finished blocking the Yagodin-Dorohusk crossing on the border with Ukraine, Ukrainian media said, citing Ukraine's Deputy Prime Minister and Communities, Territories and Infrastructure Development Minister Alexander Kubrakov.

"It was a difficult job, but it is not over yet. The border must be fully unblocked," Kubrakov said on social media.

Stable truck traffic was restored at the Yagodin-Dorohusk point, which is the largest border crossing for trucks, at 2:00 p.m. Kiev time, he said. Fifteen trucks have passed through it on their way to Ukraine and another 25 are being cleared to head to Poland, he said.

Ukraine's State Border Service has confirmed this information, media said.

"Trucks are being cleared and are crossing the border in both directions as usual," the State Border Service said on social media.

As many as 1,000 trucks are currently waiting at this border crossing to enter Ukraine, the service said. There are no buses at the crossing point. One hundred trucks are waiting on Ukraine's side of the border to cross into Poland.
