VLADIKAVKAZ, November 24 (Itar-Tass) —— Over 80 heavy trucks got blocked at the Russia-Georgia border.
The trucks are going to Armenia, but the Georgian side would not allow them to cross the border, spokesman of Russia’s border control Alexander Solod said on Thursday.
The trucks crowded three kilometers from Russia’s border crossing station, and the drivers make fires while they demand be let cross the border.
“The Russian side is ready to let the transport cross the border, but Russia-Georgia agreements limit heavy transport crossing the pass from November 1 through to April 1, and thus the Georgian side would not allow the heavy trucks,” Solod said.
A heavy snowfall complicated the situation along the road crossing the Krestovy Pass in North Ossetia. However, Solod said, the traffic continues as yet, and light vehicles cross the border. If the heavy trucks going to Armenia are not able to cross the border soon, further bad weather conditions may keep them at the border for a long time.
