The so-called Luhansk People’s Republic stated that it is not going to open the checkpoints in Donbas despite the intentions of the Ukrainian side, as so-called representative of the militants Olga Kobtseva reported.
She called the plans to open the checkpoints ‘provocation’.
“As the official representative in the humanitarian group, I publicly declare that the checkpoint in Stanytsia Luhanska will not work tomorrow. We consider the statement of Ukraine as another provocation. It was the unilateral statement,” she stated.
As reported before, Ruslan Khomchak, the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, said that the first entry/exit checkpoints on the demarcation line in the area of Joint Forces operation were being prepared for opening after June 10.
