“Last week, including Friday, the daily passenger traffic averaged between 80,000 and 85,000 individuals in both directions on weekdays, with no significant disparity between those leaving and entering Ukraine. However, a sharp increase in passenger traffic has been observed since Saturday. On Saturday, approximately 110,000 citizens crossed the border, followed by 105,000 on Sunday. Subsequently, the figures decreased to around 90,000 per day on Monday and Tuesday, with a slight increase to over 95,000 individuals yesterday.
