THE SITUATION AT THE WESTERN BORDERBACK
On March 14, more than 87 thousand people and 13 thousand vehicles crossed the state border of Ukraine with the EU and the Republic of Moldova. The figures indicate that there was a slight increase in passenger traffic compared to the previous day.
Yesterday, over 71 thousand people left Ukraine. The majority of those who left - over 48 thousand people - crossed the Ukrainian-Polish border. Currently, there is low traffic of people and vehicles in all directions.
Yesterday, over 15 thousand people came to Ukraine, almost 13 thousand of whom are Ukrainians. Most of them are men who are ready to join the ranks of the defenders of our Homeland. We are proud of our compatriots! Overall, since the beginning of the overt armed aggression, more than 260 thousand of our countrymen have returned to Ukraine.
We remind you that all checkpoints on the western border (except “Dzvinkove”) are open around the clock. Border guards and customs officers are clearing people leaving Ukraine and humanitarian aid for the Ukrainian population and the defenders of Ukraine as quickly as possible. Within the past 24 hours, 870 vehicles with humanitarian aid have been cleared.
We recommend that you monitor the density of the checkpoints traffic for the border crossing to the EU and the Republic of Moldova by following the Facebook page of the Western Regional Department of the State Border Service. The information is updated every two hours.
We ask all citizens at the border to respect law and order, queuing procedures, and morality norms while crossing the border and not to offer bribes to border guards for exceptional or illegal border crossing!
