Due to the coronavirus pandemic, crossing of Donbas checkpoints will be significantly limited, most likely until mid-summer 2021. This forecast is given in Ukraine 2021 Humanitarian Response Plan. "It is likely that the work of checkpoints on the contact line will remain substantially limited until at least mid-summer 2021," the plan informs. The document notes that Covid-19 will remain the main influencing factor until at least mid-2021. The situation is also expected to worsen in the coming winter period. The UN Office stressed that already this year, restrictions on crossing the contact line "have further increased the vulnerability of people."
