The blockade on the Polish-Ukrainian border may last a long time, at least until the end of the year. As of the morning of November 10, about 1,700 trucks are queuing at the border checkpoints at Rava Russkaya, Krakovets and Yagodin.
From 13:00 on November 6, a gradual decrease in traffic began in all three directions. In the direction of entry and exit from Poland to Ukraine: all three directions were blocked by protesters. They stated that they would allow no more than one vehicle through every hour. It was also recorded that traffic leaving Ukraine was completely blocked at the Yagodin checkpoint, while trucks left en masse through Krakovets and Rava-Russkaya. But on November 7, the Polish side also refused to allow trucks to cross the border at the Rava-Russkaya checkpoint.
In fact, the situation has not changed. Only people traveling from Ukraine to Poland are concentrated at the Krakovets checkpoint.
Only trucks have difficulty crossing. It is worth understanding that at the Yagodin checkpoint only trucks and buses are allowed through. However, as the participants and organizers of the rally note, the passage of buses and cars is not blocked.
Ukraine hopes that this situation will be resolved as quickly as possible so as not to impede traffic flow. However, the participants and organizers of the rally did not meet with any representatives of Ukraine to present their official demands.
Because of the strike of Polish carriers, problems are already being recorded for Ukraine!
Prices for food and other essential goods are rising. Due to problems with delivering goods to store shelves, prices are rising. This is especially noticeable in relation to goods that are imported from other countries.
Difficulties with the delivery of humanitarian aid. The strike makes it difficult to deliver humanitarian aid to Ukraine. This may result in delays or even interruption of deliveries.
Problems with the export of Ukrainian products. The strike also makes it difficult to export Ukrainian products from the country. This could lead to a decrease in Ukraine’s income and problems with the supply of goods to the world market.
Here are specific examples of how the strike is affecting the Ukrainian economy:
Wheat prices in Ukraine have increased by 20% since the strike began. This is due to the fact that wheat is one of the main export goods of Ukraine, and its supply to other countries is difficult.
Supplies of humanitarian aid to Ukraine decreased by 20%. This is due to the fact that humanitarian aid is delivered to Ukraine mainly by road, and because of the strike, border crossing is difficult.
Exports of Ukrainian products to EU countries decreased by 30%. This is due to the fact that Ukraine’s main trading partners are EU countries, and their supplies to these countries are difficult.
The authorities of Ukraine and Poland are negotiating how to solve the problem with the strike. However, so far the negotiations have not yielded results, and the strike continues.
