The number of staff will be increased in all the Check points in the Donbas region on Christmas and New Year holidays. The representative of Ukraine in the humanitarian subgroup of the Trilateral contact group Iryna Gerashchenko reported this on Facebook.
"The border guards, state financial control and the SBU officers will be increased in the most loaded check points in Novotroitske, Marinka and Mayorske", she said.
Gerashchenko also said that the allowable weight for personal luggage was increased up to 75 kg.
"We want the checkpoints to vanish from the Ukrainian territory for good. It will be possible only after regaining control over the Ukrainian-Russian border," added Gerashchenko.
