The European Commission may initiate criminal proceedings against Poland if the country’s authorities do not resolve the issue of blocking the checkpoints on the border with Ukraine. This was reported on November 16 by the Polish news agency RMF FM, citing information from one of the European Commission’s spokespersons.
“The Polish authorities, in accordance with EU law, are obliged to ensure the free movement of Ukrainian trucks at border crossings,” the spokesman said.
At the same time, the European Commission does not want to officially comment on the measures it may take against the Polish authorities, as negotiations with Poland and Ukraine are ongoing.
“The European Commission is still in contact with the authorities of both countries, we cannot comment on potential measures as the discussion is ongoing,” the spokesman said.
