As of Saturday morning, Polish protesters have blocked six border crossings with Ukraine, with 3,300 trucks queued up.

Andriy Demchenko, the spokesperson for the State Border Guard Service, reported this on the "Yedyni Novyny" telethon.

"Currently, as of Saturday morning, the blocking of the Ukrainian-Polish border continues at six points. Yesterday, Polish protesters began blocking the Krakovets checkpoint. There are 3,300 trucks waiting in queues to enter Ukraine," Demchenko said.

According to him, the largest queue is at the Krakovets checkpoint, with 1,600 trucks, and at the Yahodyn checkpoint, there are 550 vehicles.

The State Border Guard Service spokesperson noted that on Friday, 45 trucks crossed the border at the Shehyni checkpoint, with 25 entering Ukraine, effectively meaning one truck crosses the border per hour. At the Yahodyn checkpoint, approximately 140 freight vehicles crossed the border within 24 hours, with 108 of them entering Ukraine.
