Poland truck protests leave Ukrainian drivers stranded - BBC News

Huge queues of lorries have built up on the Polish-Ukrainian border due to a blockade by Polish truckers, who are accusing Ukrainians of stealing their business.

Humanitarian and military aid are waved through into Ukraine, as is perishable food and livestock. But everything else gets stuck.

Ukrainian drivers have been sleeping in their cabs for over a week, waiting to cross the border, and are running out of supplies.

Ukraine’s ambassador to Poland has called the hauliers’ protest a “stab in the back” from a country that has been a close ally ever since Russia launched its full-scale invasion.

Polish truckers said they were forced into this extreme step to protect their livelihoods after the EU lifted all entry restrictions on Ukrainian carriers.
