The participants of the railway communication blockade between controlled by Ukraine territories and individual parts of Donetsk and Luhansk regions also intend to block the connection between Ukraine and the Russian Federation. This was stated by the participant of the blockade, MP Semen Semenchenko in his commentary to Interfax-Ukraine.
Asked about the possibility of blocking the highways, Semenchenko said: "We plan to expand our activity on the railway routes, which are used for import of products from Russia. On the road routes it will be harder to make it. For this we need more people, and there is a high probability of provocations. "
According to him, currently the blockade does not cover only one railway line, linking the territory controlled by Ukraine and ORDLO - passing through the village Stanitsa Luhanska. "At present we have blocked all routes except that path." - Semenchenko said.
According to the MP, the participants of the blockade since the beginning of the action have prevented the passage of about 16 thousand railcars.
"We plan to block the entire trade with Russia, the so-called DNR and LNR, he said.
