Ukraine’s economy loses over EUR 1 billion due to border blockade

The border blockade by Polish truckers affected not only the Ukrainian economy, as the economy of Poland suffered significant losses too.

Volodymyr Balin, Vice President of the Association of International Road Carriers of Ukraine, made this statement during a briefing at Media Center Ukraine – Ukrinform.
