Seriously, are they thinking they ever will attract tourists with 6 hour waiting times at the border?

How will this go during Euro 2012? There will probably be much more traffic during this tournament.

I suppose the traffic will unofficially divide into two groups: supporters and non-supporters. I bet people will be so determined to pass the border they will pay every amount of money.

I believe once Ukraine and Poland are really close-knit neighbors, there can be no better chance to create a nicely working system of border crossing than Euro '12: some new terminals, roads and all that kind of crap. Most likely this problem is mentioned in the infrastructure development plan.

Saying we're close to each other is crap. They don't feel any sympathy towards us, only our money. Let building of UPA soldiers cementary right next to Cemetery of Eaglets be a good example of that.

But this is not DLM here, so EOT.

Well, no offence. I've just heared many various views from both Poland and Ukraine, and Russia on that matter, so it all kinda confuses me.

Anyways i meant economical ties.

It's funny that Ukraine controls its border (much) more thoroughly than the Schengen Area.

Oh really? Ukrainian control is "open the bonnet, open the trunk". They don't even look into luggage. It's only a waste of time.

Polish one is that they can order you to move to the side ant take EVERYTHING out of the car.

My record of wait time was on the border with Poland / Belarus (Terespol/Brest). There is a building where if it ask of the Customs you can check the luggage. This building is know as a building where you hope nothing to do with!!

Total wait time: 6,5 hour. I passed the border with a bus.

So it's just a waste of time, even worse.

Especially for you, the largest hypermarket in France, and perhaps also in Europe. It's located in the suburbs of Toulouse.

In Hungary some people simply call Auchan as the 'Tesco with bird'
