Ukrainian troops not receiving supplies due to protests on Polish border - media

AFU soldiers have complained that they are not receiving military equipment because of protests by Polish drivers on the border with Ukraine, the New York Times reported.

“Although medical, military and some food supplies should be exempt from the drivers’ blockade, Ukrainian soldiers, volunteers and business owners say the chaos is beginning to take its toll on already unreliable supply lines,” the publication reported.

One Ukrainian soldier named Volodymyr complained that needed aid was being blocked at the border at one of the most difficult moments of the conflict. Another soldier, Alexander, told the newspaper that his unit could not receive night vision devices because they were stuck on the border.

We shall remind you that earlier RMF FM radio station reported that Polish hauliers blocked the movement of freight transport at three checkpoints on the border with Ukraine. The protesters demanded the introduction of commercial permits for Ukrainian hauliers and limiting their number.
