In the press statements she made, Revenco offered assurances that the joint customs clearance process will start on Wednesday in Leușeni. According to her, the authorities made derogations and created regulations in order to be able to apply the procedures at the same time.
We remind you that the problem of the trucks standing in line at customs is not a new one, and the drivers spent 48 hours in a row before. After Russia invaded Ukraine, the waiting time for controls increased 2.5 times, and carriers asked authorities on both sides of the Prut to identify solutions.
Natalia Gavrilița discussed the subject with her Romanian counterpart, Nicolae Ciucă, and the Government in Chisinau announced the implementation of joint customs clearance and specified that it will provide psychological and medical assistance to drivers.
