Activists from Zakarpattia, Lviv and Volyn regions announced a protest action, blocking cargo transport with Russian registration numbers from crossing Ukraine's border. The rally aimed at blocking Russian trucks from crossing the Ukrainian territory is spreading across the country, according to Ukraine Today.

"Today the indefinite action of blocking Russian trucks in Zakarpattia Region has started. Some days ago Poland forbade [Russian cargo transport] to enter and move on its territory. Therefore, trucks that are transporting the production of Kremlin occupation forces to European countries changed their route, and the traffic at the borders of Zakarpattia Region with Slovakia and Hungary increased", activists report on Facebook, Ukraine Today reported.
