Lithuanian truck drivers in severe conditions at Russian border

“What is worst is that the number of vehicles checked during the week is low and we are now worrying about the drivers and thinking about how to get them out of this, because the weather conditions are really unenviable. At this rate, it may take several weeks or even a month before the trucks are cleared,” Julius Misiūnas, who is the CEO of the logistics company Ignolita, told BNS.

Linava’s vice-president said that he could not give an exact number of trucks stuck at the border, but estimated that there might be more than a hundred vehicles.

“We are arranging a trip to the border next Tuesday or Wednesday. We will then have more information,” Misiūnas said.

He said that Russian customs officers were providing no information to truck drivers.
