More than 800 drivers are waiting at Ukrainian-Polish border crossing points, Ukrainian State Border Service says

Hundreds of people wait until they will be allowed to cross the border. The biggest queue is at the "Rava-Ruska" checkpoint. Approximately 250 drivers stay there.

The increase of car queues was rather predictable. The majority of drivers stuck in the lines are residents of border areas. They were barred from crossing the border by fast track proceeding during a month.
