Ukraine Crisis: Hungary extends exemption for Ukrainian haulers
Hungary has extended an exemption from mandatory hauler permits for Ukrainian trucks by two months until the end of June, the Innovation and Technology Ministry said on Monday, according to a report by state news wire MTI.
The exemption, introduced after the start of the war in Ukraine, applies to haulers traveling both to and from Ukraine.
The ministry noted that international haulers have mostly avoided Ukraine since the start of the war, putting the onus of getting food, medicines, and other products to Ukrainians on local haulers. Bureaucratic hurdles can make their work "very difficult and in many cases impossible", it added.
