The restriction will remain in effect until the Russia issue another decision to invalidate it, the Cabinet noted on its telegram channel.

The ban was introduced in 2022 as a response to the EU’s decision not to allow trucks with Russian and Belarusian license plates through. An exception, as before, will be made for the transportation of postal items, diplomatic mail and humanitarian aid. In addition, the restriction will no longer apply to "the passage of technical support vehicles for the transport of equipment and sports vehicles to the venues of sports competitions".
