Ukraine and Moldova say they will open a new railway border crossing point in Ukrainian territory to ease exports and save money.

„Ukraine and Moldova will organize joint control at the ‘Novosavițcaia–Kuchurhan’ railway border crossing point in Ukrainian territory. The corresponding protocol was signed today by the heads of the border and customs services of our countries following an online conversation with Moldovan Prime Minister Dorin Recean,” Ukrainian Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal posted on Telegram.

In the spring, the countries conducted joint control on the railways at the „Serpneve 1 – Basarabeasca” border crossing point for the first time.

This helps move Ukrainian exports, halves the duration of all procedures, minimizes queues, and saves state funds, the Ukrainian premier said.

He said the countries plan to apply the experience of joint control at all border crossing points with Moldova, and later at the borders with all neighboring EU states.

„Together we are developing fast logistics in the western direction. In the Ukraine-Moldova-Romania triangle, we have every opportunity to activate logistics corridors to diversify Ukrainian export routes,” he said.
