MOSCOW, February 16. /TASS/. The movement of almost 200 Ukrainian heavy trucks that are currently in Russia has been suspended, the Russian Transport Ministry said on Tuesday.
"To date, the situation with blocking the movement of Russian cargo vehicles along the territory of Ukraine remains unresolved. In connection with this, Russia’s Federal Transportation Inspection Service continues to exercise oversight of the Ukrainian cargo vehicles on Russia’s territory. Currently, the movement of 197 such vehicles has been suspended," the ministry said in a statement.
According to the transport ministry, it has received no formal notification from the Ukrainian authorities about the suspension of the transit traffic by vehicles registered in Russia through Ukraine’s territory.
On February 12, radically-minded Ukrainian activists in the area of Mokrany-Domanovo blocked entry into Ukraine (from Belarus) to trucks with Russian license plates and the license plates of other countries carrying Russian goods. A day earlier, a group of activists, including former participants in the military crackdown in Donbass, launched a similar protest action to upset the transit of Russian heavy trucks. They set up two road blocks in the area of village Nizhniye Vorota.
More than 100 Russian trucks are blocked in various regions of Ukraine at the moment. They are banned practically from all roads in Western Ukraine. Taking part in the road blockade, according to the Ukrainian TV channel 112, are nine regions - Volyn, Rivne, Lviv, Zakarpattia, Ivano-Frankivsk, Zhytomyr, Vinnytsia, Sumy and Chernivtsi. The demonstrators are pressing for an official ban on the movement of Russian trucks through Ukraine. They warn the campaign is open-ended.
