Cargo communication with China suspended in Primorye
Cargo communication with China was suspended at the border checkpoint of the Primorsky Territory. Truck admission is discontinued ten days from May 20.
According to the press service of the regional government, the decision was made by Governor Oleg Kozhemyako. This is due to the worsening epidemic situation in Heilongjiang and Jilin provinces.
According to the deputy chairman of the government of Primorye, Konstantin Shestakov, now 30 trucks have again been allowed to cross the Pogranichny border crossing point, while ten cars were allowed before. Because of this, about 300 trucks were accumulated at the border. They decided to close the cargo connection due to the fact that with the current throughput capacity, trucks will be able to cross the border no earlier than in ten days.
During this time, traffic police posts will be in front of the checkpoints, which will deploy truck drivers to parking lots or vice versa. There are no restrictions on the import of goods from China.
Moreover, today it was reported that in the Primorsky Territory on round-the-clock mode the work will go to the Kraskino and Pogranichny border checkpoints. The corresponding order was given to the relevant departments by the Deputy Prime Minister and Presidential Envoy to the Far Eastern Federal District, Yuri Trutnev. The new schedule will be valid until September.
The authorities of Suifenhe from May 12 reduced the flow of goods transport across the border due to the fact that one of the Russian drivers after entering the country discovered coronavirus.

Truckers staged a protest - refused to cross the border for three days, they left the cars and went home.
