Lviv oblast. People press each other at “Shehini” checkpoint checkpoint, that is on the Ukrainian-Polish border. One woman fell to the ground and almost got trampled.
Someone jumps over the partition, goes almost over the heads of their fellow countrymen. Polish border guard with a straight face restrains the crowd, trying to cut off the path to the checkpoint.
Crush usually happens before the holidays and on weekends, when the shuttles massively carry to Poland cigarettes and vodka, to earn a penny. On the other side of the border smugglers resell cigarettes about twice as expensive. Profit is about $ 500 per month.
“I used to be in such queue and not once. It’s a circus! This is uncontrolled crowd, in which everyone thinks that exactly he will be the first. That’s why they force their way like sheep, behave like monkeys” – says internet user Sergio Romanoff.
Others defend the shuttles. “Who is then cattle? People who really need to cross the border, or the services of our country?” – comments Dmitry Peskov.
