EU ultimatum: 60 km long line of Russian trucks at the border

A 60-kilometer-long line of truck-lorries from Russia and Belarus formed on the Polish border to leave the territory of the European Union (EU). Truck-lorry drivers from Russia and Belarus were instructed to leave EU territory by Saturday as part of the ban. This situation has arisen since then.

According to the BBC, long queues of trucks and lorries have formed on the Poland-Belarus border for about 60 kilometers (60 miles).

230 to 400 trucks and lorries are stuck at the two border crossings. Some truck drivers wait up to 33 hours to cross the border.

The EU imposed the sanctions on trucks and lorries belonging to Russia and its ally Belarus as part of sanctions against Ukraine over the war. However, trucks and lorries carrying drugs, postal and petroleum products are exempt from the ban.
Poland is an EU member state. These truck-lorries are entering Belarus via Poland.

The EU did not say what action would be taken if the ban was lifted.

A Belarusian truck driver stranded at the border said the ultimatum was coming to an end. But he has a long way to go. It is not possible to accept the ultimatum in this situation.
