Poland suspends small border traffic with Ukraine and Russia
This decision is temporary, small border traffic will be resumed on August 2
On July 4, 2016 Poland will suspend the small border traffic with Ukraine in the part concerning entry and residence in the territory of Poland residents of border regions of Ukraine, who have a permit issued by the relevant authorities of the country.
Also Warsaw suspended the regime of small border traffic on the border with Russia in the Kaliningrad region, reports Interfax-Ukraine. The amendments concern the the Russian citizens living in the Kaliningrad region, who had previously crossed the Polish border with special permission.
The reason for the changes is the holding of the NATO summit in Poland on 8-9 July, as well as the arrival of the Pope of Rome to the country during the celebration of World Youth Days on 20-31 of July.
