Militants of the self-proclaimed "DPR" have announced that today’s decision of National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine regarding blockade of Donetsk and Luhansk occupied regions is none of their business, according to the commentary of "DPR" leader Alexander Zakharchenko.

"We don’t care," Zakharchenko said, reminding that militants imposed started their own blockade on March 1 and are not going to change this decision. Illegal armed groups have actually captured Ukrainian enterprises by introducing external management on these companies.

"It is not only about external management on those our enterprises which were being run by Ukraine until recently. We also prohibited export of our goods and raw materials to Ukrainian territory. This blockade from our side is ongoing. And we are not going to cancel it. Therefore, Kyiv authorities can do whatever they want on their delimitation line: impose blockade or lift it. We don’t care. We do not change our position," militants’ leader claimed.

Earlier today National Security and Defense Council imposed limitations on cargo traffic through delimitation line. This does not relate to movement of civil population or humanitarian goods supply. The works to ensure blocking of railway lines and roads should have been started at 1 p.m. Internal Ministry confirmed that they can ensure such decision.
