Ukraine planning to open new checkpoints on Ukrainian-Polish border

Ukraine is planning to open three-four new checkpoints on the Ukrainian-Polish border in Lviv and Volyn regions, as well as on the border with Poland and Slovakia in Zakarpattia region.

This was announced by Ambassador of Ukraine to Poland Andrii Deshchytsia on the air of the Dom TV channel, Ukrinform reports.

"We have plans, there is an interdepartmental commission that develops plans for the opening of checkpoints. We already have experience, there are locations where we would like to open these checkpoints," he said.

According to the ambassador, new checkpoints are planned to be opened in Lviv region (on the border section near the Polish city of Przemyśl) and in Volyn region.

Ukraine is also considering the opening of new checkpoints in Zakarpattia region, on the border with Poland and Slovakia.

"It may be even in Zakarpattia region, although this checkpoint there will most likely be a pedestrian checkpoint for now," Deshchytsia said.

According to him, this issue is complicated because there are national parks near the border. In particular, in Zakarpattia region, the border zone is located on the territory of Uzhanskyi National Nature Park, in Slovakia - Polonyny, in Poland - Beschadsky.

“It is more difficult to negotiate there because this checkpoint is located in a protected area. Therefore, we still need a permit from the national park," Deshchytsia said.
