The State Border Guard Service has warned Ukrainians of an increase in activity on the Ukrainian-Polish border. It is noted that 75,000 people crossed the border with Poland on 2 July. Read more about the situation at the border and recommendations for crossing the border in the article below. 


Ukrainian-Polish border: current information 


In June, a total of 719,000 people entered Poland from Ukraine. Currently, there is a significant increase in the flow of passengers wishing to leave Ukraine via the Polish border. Representatives of the State Border Guard Service attribute this to the summer holiday season.  


Due to the excessive workload of checkpoints on the Ukrainian-Polish border, Ukrainians are advised to monitor the latest information on queues and, if possible, choose the most free checkpoints to cross.


"Due to the increase in the flow of people leaving the country, we recommend that Ukrainians travelling through Poland in transit choose other checkpoints, for example, in Zakarpattia and Chernivtsi regions", commented representatives of the State Border Guard Service.
