The representatives of illegal armed forces continue to block the traffic on the entry-exit check-point Zolote, the rest of the checkpoints work in a normal mode. This was announced by the speaker of the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine Oleh Slobodyan.
“The situation in Zolote hasn’t changed . There’s readiness to start operating, but Russian militants from the other side of the check point are strongly refuse to open traffic. It is highly likely that they have something to hide, that’s why they are insistently blocking the traffic. All the rest check-points work in a normal mode. More than 22 thousand people and 3.6 vehicles crossed the border line over the last 24 hours,” Slobodyan said.
As it was reported earlier, the trilateral contact group discussed the ceasefire violation in Donbas through videoconference. The Ukrainian side drew attention to the increasing number of attacks that have recently taken place. Mostly representatives of certain areas of Donetsk and Lugansk regions shelled Shyrokyne, Avdiivka, Krasnogorivka, Stanytsia Luhanska. The OSCE Special Monitoring Mission to Ukraine confirmed these violations of the ceasefire.
