It was the decision of Serhiy Nayev, the Commander of the Joint Forces Operation who ruled to open the checkpoint due to stabilization of the situation in Donetsk-Kurakhove corridor.
All checkpoints are now working as scheduled.
On April 5, the pro-Kremlin occupants opened fire on the corridor at Mariinka checkpoint in Donetsk region. An officer of Ukraine's State Border Guard was wounded, and the checkpoint was closed.
On April 9, the overall passenger flow was quite dynamic. 36.3 thousand people and 4.3 thousand vehicles crossed the checkpoint.
On April 10, illegal armed formations from the Russian Federation attacked outposts of Ukrainian forces in Donbas 13 times. That included seven occasions when the enemy used Minsk-banned weaponry.
There are no casualties among the Ukrainian troops over the said period.
