A new checkpoint on the Ukrainian-Hungarian border is planned to be opened in Vynogradiv district
Yesterday the Chairman of the Transcarpathian Regional Council Volodymyr Chubriko and the Head of the Department of Border Economy Development of the Ministry of Foreign Economy and Foreign Affairs of Hungary Peter Kiss-Partsiu examined the site where it is planned to equip checkpoints on the Ukrainian-Hungarian border. In particular, they visited Velyka Palad in Vynogradiv district.
The parties discussed the development of new crossing points on the Hungarian-Ukrainian border, which is 137 km long, where the Szabolcs-Szatmár-Bereg region of Hungary borders to Transcarpathia. The Hungarians are ready to open three new crossing points. The first one may be the crossing point Nagyhodos - Velyka Palad. Here, on the Hungarian side, 7.50 m wide road between the settlement of Nagyhodos and the state border has been built, and the bridge has been reconstructed. All preparatory work for the construction of a checkpoint and construction on the Hungarian side will be financed by Hungary. A common control system will be used there. On the Ukrainian side, it is necessary to build a road in length of 9 kilometers. The Hungarians believe that the project may be co-financed at the expense of the EU funds.
