Poland will demand that the European Union restore permits restricting transit for Ukrainian truckers.

This was stated by Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki, writes Reuters.

Polish drivers have been blocking crossings since November 6, demanding that the EU restore a system in which Ukrainian companies need permits to operate in the bloc and European truckers to enter the Ukraine. The permits themselves were revoked after Russia's invasion of Ukraine.

"We will very resolutely and unequivocally demand the restoration of transportation permits for Ukrainian drivers," Morawiecki said.

The Polish drivers were joined by Polish farmers and later by Slovak truckers. They complain that their Ukrainian counterparts offer cheaper prices for their services, as well as transport goods within the EU, not just between the bloc and Ukraine.

Recall that one of the categories of trucks began to pass on the border with Poland.
