No agreement reached on unblocking border checkpoints between Poland and Ukraine




During the tripartite negotiations, which took place on November 15 at the Dorogusk checkpoint, it was not possible to reach an agreement on ending the blocking of the Ukrainian-Polish border. This was reported by the press service of the Ministry of Restoration of Ukraine.

The representatives from the Ministry of Community Development, Territories, and Infrastructure of Ukraine, the Ministry of Infrastructure of Poland, and the European Commission's Directorate for Transport and Mobility (DG MOVE) were involved in discussions.

"The main demand of the protesters is to return to the permit system. This demand cannot be fulfilled, as stated by the Ukrainian side, and DG MOVE emphasized that such an issue cannot be the subject of this meeting. The agreement on the liberalization of freight transportation between Ukraine and the EU will be valid at least until June 30, 2024," the message states.

As a result of the negotiations, the parties worked out joint solutions and offered them to the Polish protesters.

"The latest proposals were not agreed. The parties continue to search for solutions that would allow the situation to be resolved," the Ministry of Reconstruction summarized.
