Pro-Kremlin militants continue blocking the work of five checkpoints in Donbas. These are Schastya, Zolote, Hnutove, Mayorske and Mariinka. This was mentioned on the website of the State Border Guard of Ukraine.
The authority claimed that in fact, only two checkpoints are working on the side of militants.
"Passage of citizens is performed only at entry-exit checkpoints of Stanystia Luhanska (every day) and Novotroitske - twice a week, on Mondays and Fridays, when the occupants unblock the traffic", reads the message.
The Ukrainian side allows citizens to pass through checkpoints daily from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The State Border Guard also said that during the week, Russian mercenaries did not let 14 citizens to pass across checkpoints - nine of them at Stanytsia Luhanska, two at Novotroitske and another three at Mariinka.
