Protesters from four more EU countries to join Polish farmers in blocking Ukraine border entry checkpoint

On 18 February, truck traffic at the Dorohusk-Yahodyn international checkpoint at the Ukrainian-Polish border will be completely blocked. According to the State Customs Service of Ukraine, the Polish farmers who have been blocking the checkpoint since 9 February will be joined by farmers from Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands, and France, Suspilne reports. Polish customs officials warned the Ukrainian side about the large-scale protest.

The Polish farmers’ protests follow a recent two-month blockade by Polish truckers at major border crossings, attempting to address local issues by disrupting imports to and exports from Ukraine, a nation currently facing the challenges of the all-out war and Russia’s genocide.

According to Ukrainian customs officials, as of 17 February, 550 trucks were queuing to enter Ukraine in front of the Yahodyn-Dorohusk checkpoint, and another 820 trucks were waiting in the electronic queue to leave.
