The blockade of the Bulgarian – Greek border crossings by Greek farmers is in stark violation of EU law. The blockade infringes the right of European citizens to move freely within the territory of the Member states (art. 21 TFEU) and hinders the free movement of goods and services (art. 26 TFEU).
More, the Bulgarian and Greek authorities have an obligation under Regulation (EC) 2679/98 on the functioning of the internal market in relation to the free movement of goods among the Member States to immediately inform the European Commission. The Greek authorities should also take all necessary and proportionate measures to remove the obstacles.
