Russia continues to block the traffic of cargo trucks on the state border with Ukraine in Kharkiv region. Currently, about 150 trucks remain on Ukraine's territory at Goptivka-Nehoteevka border crossing, as the Russian side ceased to let them in on Sunday.

Oleg Slobodyan, the Assistant Head of the State Border Guard of Ukraine said that in his commentary for 112 Ukraine TV channel. ‘The Russian checkpoint stopped working for some reason, thus cargo trucks cannot enter the territory of Russia. There are no official comments on the issue so far, and no written response from Russians, too,' he said.
