"Recently, a land management project was approved in Zakarpattia and a land plot of almost 12 hectares was allocated for a new 24-hour checkpoint outside the settlement of Bila Tserkva, Tyachiv district," the statement reads.
It is planned to build four lanes for trucks, six lanes for cars, two lanes for buses and two for pedestrians.
As it was reported, three to four new checkpoints will open on the border of Ukraine with Poland, as well as with Slovakia. In particular, new border checkpoints are planned to be opened in Lviv region on the border section near the Polish city of Przemyśl, and in Volyn region. The opening of new checkpoints in Zakarpattia, on the border with Poland and Slovakia, is also being discussed.
Ukraine offered the Republic of Poland to hold an independent international audit of the work of checkpoints on the Ukrainian-Polish state border. The Polish side insists that the issue of granting permits directly depends on the improvement of the situation with queues at the Ukrainian-Polish border.
