The actions of the militants on the demarcation line lead to breaks in the operation schedule of the checkpoints in Donbas, as the press office of the Border Guard Service reported.

As the agency informed, the militants were violating the schedule and thus put lives and health of the civilians under threat.
"Despite the defined schedule of the checkpoints, the Russian armed formations continue putting the lives and health of the civilians under threat, sending them to cross the demarcation line in the dark. Therefore, they violate the commitments that concern safe operation of the humanitarian road corridors. The pro-Russian mercenaries are intentionally violating the human rights... They slow down the passing procedure on the demarcation line at a certain time. Therefore, checkpoints are crowded and full of vehicles on the temporarily occupied territory," the message says.
After the checkpoint working hours are over, the militants start letting the civilians pass and force them to spend a night in a "grey zone", which is dangerous.

“Yesterday, the militants performed such provocative actions on all the checkpoints, when at 5 p.m., a large number of the civilians and cars appeared from the temporarily occupied territory of Ukraine. 246 citizens arrived at Stanytsia Luhanska checkpoint, 64 cars to Novotroitske checkpoint, 25 cars to Hnutove one, 25 to Mayorske, and another 28 to Marinka checkpoint. While talking to the citizens, the border guards found out that the occupant troops  intentionally kept people at their checkpoints and blocked the crossing operations for some time. Considering the darkness and potential threat, under the decision of the Joint Forces Commander, the operation of the mentioned checkpoints was prolonged. The border guards from the Joint Forces staff organized events on additional processing of 835 citizens in the defined order of crossing the demarcation line,” the representatives of the Border Guard Service said.

“Despite the provocation at the humanitarian road corridors, the enemy’s forces will not reach their goal as the Joint Forces units defend human rights, freedoms and legal interests of the Ukrainians,” the Border Guards noted.
