As a transportation company director told PanARMENIAN.Net 4 trucks with Armenian cargo have already crossed the Russian-Georgian border.

Earlier, a traffic jam was reported at Upper Lars checkpoint over a shift to winter schedule, allowing to cross the border from 7 am to 6pm only.

A major line of trucks had been formed at the site, with truck drivers left without a chance to procure food or water.

Over a hundred trucks from Armenia, Ukraine, Azerbaijan were waiting to cross the Russian-Georgian border.
