The division line checkpoint in Stanytsia Luhanska will be closed from September 2 to 7, due to the ongoing maintenance works. The press service of Luhansk regional state administration reported that on Thursday.
The respective agreement was made during the session of Minsk contact group on August 22.
The authority explained that the works include settling of temporary constructions, as well as connection to power networks and water facilities.
After the repair works are done, the number of workplaces at the new checkpoint will be increased.
Stanytsia Luhanska is only one working checkpoint on the division line in Luhansk region. Another checkpoint in Zolote has been shut down for a while because the Russian militants refuse to open it.
As we reported earlier, Stanytsia Luhanska checkpoint (Ukraine-controlled area of Luhansk region) will be closed for maintenance works. The press service of Luhansk regional administration reported that on Facebook.
'Starting on August 6, the service zone of entry-exit checkpoint of Stanytsia Luhanska will be undertaking refurbishment works. It will keep running; the local residents should be advised that the checkpoint will work as usual', said Yuriy Klymenko, the deputy head of the authority.
The entry-exit operations will be suspended from August 27 till August 31, if the parties to the Minsk talks group decide so during the next session, which is slated for August 22. During the time, maintenance workers will set the temporary constructions on the premises, and plug them into the local electricity and water supply systems.
