“We have not reached an agreement. The Ukrainian side does not take our demands into account,” said Rafał Meckler, the organiser of the protest in the border town of Dorohusk.

On 6 November, dozens of Polish hauliers began blocking the three border crossings with Ukraine.

According to the Polish Ministry of Infrastructure, the protesters have six requirements:

  • reinstate the use of EU entry permits for Ukrainian lorries;
  • strengthen the requirements for transportation within the framework of the EICMT (certificates of the European Conference of Ministers of Transport);
  • prohibit registration of companies with capital from outside the EU in Poland;
  • access to the Ukrainian Shliakh (“Way”) system [a digital system which allows male drivers or volunteers to legally cross the border under martial law– ed.];
  • separate queues for lorries from the EU in the Ukrainian eCherha system [free service available in an open mode for hauliers registered in the Shliakh system – ed.];
  • separate queues for empty cars.

On Monday, the Ministry for Communities, Territories and Infrastructure Development of Ukraine announced a meeting on the border with representatives of the Polish authorities and hauliers to unblock checkpoints.
