MOSCOW, February 15. /TASS/. Russian trucks have been allowed to enter Belarus from Ukrainian territory, the Association of International Truck Haulage said on Monday.
"According to information received from Russian truck drivers, Russian trucks were allowed through the Domanovo-Mokrany checkpoint in the evening of February 14," the association said in a statement. The trucks are allowed to enter "Belarus only from Ukrainian territory," the statement added.
Trucks with Russian plates were blocked from passing the Domanovo-Mokrany checkpoint and entering Ukrainian territory from Belarus on February 12. Another action to prevent transit of Russian trucks through Ukrainian territory was launched last week in Ukraine’s Zakarpattia Region at two checkpoints near the Nizhnye Vorota village.
More than 100 Russian trucks are currently blocked in different parts of Ukraine. Roads were blocked for them in most part of western Ukraine. According to "112" Ukrainian TV channel, nine regions joined the action, including Volyn, Rivne, Lviv, Zakarpattia, Ivano-Frankivsk, Zhytomyr, Vinnytsia, Sumy and Chernivtsi. Participants in the protest demand official ban for Russian transit via Ukrainian territory.
In response to Ukraine’s actions, Russia suspended movement of Ukrainian trucks via Russian territory on February 14. "As a response measure, Russia suspended movement of trucks registered in Ukraine on its territory," the Transport Ministry said in a statement.
