Monday, 18 December 2023

Lithuania, Sweden and Canada intend to create a Common Interest Group for Ukraine (CIG4U) within the framework of the International Transport Forum to support the recovery of Ukraine's transport industry and the development of logistics routes.

Serhii Derkach, Deputy Minister of Development of Communities, Territories and Infrastructure, said on Facebook that the main directions of the group's work will be coordinating support for material needs related to transport and analytical support for restoring transport connections.

The official added that the first projects will be aimed at the sustainable development of road and rail freight transportation in Ukraine.

"We are grateful to our partners for supporting Ukraine with actions, which is extremely important now," Derkach said.

Earlier, it was reported that Polish hauliers are starting a new blockade of the access road to the Dorohusk checkpoint on the border with Ukraine, and farmers will join them.

On 15 December, the Lublin District Court allowed Polish hauliers to renew their protest at the Dorohusk checkpoint from 18 December, which had been blocked by the head of the municipality.

The blockade of Polish carriers has been ongoing since 6 November, its key demand is to bring back the permit system for Ukrainian hauliers.

Meanwhile, since 23 November, farmers from the Deceived Village organisation have been protesting in Medyka, Poland. They demand, among other things, subsidies for corn.
