KIEV, February 21. /TASS/. Radically minded activists of the blockade of Russian trucks in Ukraine threaten to resume the boycott after the back-home regime is over on February 25 in case the government takes no relevant measures.
"We are now working to make our actions more constructive," a blockade activist told Ukraine’s 112.Ukraina television channel on Sunday. "Naturally, resumption of the blockade is not ruled out, since we all have agreed that there is no room for Russian businesses in Ukraine."
On February 11, Ukrainian radicals in the Transcarpathian Region announced an open-ended action to block transit of Russian trucks from and to the European UNion. Later they were joined by radically set citizens in nine more regions: Volyn, Rovno, Lvov, Transcarpathia, Ivano-Frankovsk, Zhitomir, Vinnitsa, Sumy and Chernovtsy.
In response, on February 14 Russia suspended movement of Ukrainian trucks across Russian territory. On February 15, the Ukrainian government officially announced suspension of transit traffic of trucks registered in Russia.
Last Tuesday, Kiev and Moscow reached an agreement on a back-home regime for truck transit to allow drivers return to the country of registration.
Commenting on this situation, the European Union’s ambassador to Ukraine, Jan Tombinski, expressed the hope that problems with truck transit would soon be settled.
On February 19, Russian trucks were finally let to drive home from the Transcarpathian region.
