Pro-Russian mercenaries unilaterally continue the working hours of checkpoints in eastern Ukraine. This may cause life hazard for those crossing the division line. The press center of counter-terrorism operation HQ reported that on Thursday, adding that such actions are provocative and deadly.
‘On December 20, Novotroitske checkpoint was forced to continue working for another hour – due to the fact that the militants let the civilian transportі into the demilitarized area 15 minutes before the designated time of shutdown. The Ukrainian side had to check 208 cars and 500 people before letting them onto the Ukrainian territory,’ the message said.
