"The blockade of the railway by Ukrainian Armed Forces veterans that are still going on the demarcation line is a growing concern because it can exacerbate existing vulnerabilities and entail humanitarian consequences and social tensions. Financial losses, higher unemployment, lower efficiency of damaged heating plants are some of the possible consequences of the blockade", reads the document.
