The sides confirmed the mutual security guarantees for unblocking process of opening of Shchastya and Zolote checkpoints at the meeting of the Trilateral Contact Group (TCG) as the Ukrainian delegation reported.
“During today’s general meeting of the TCG in the video-conference format, the sides confirmed the mutual security guarantees for unblocking process of opening of Shchastya and Zolote checkpoints from the side uncontrolled by the Ukrainian government,” the message said.
Moreover, Coordinator of a humanitarian subgroup of the TCG Toni Frisch confirmed his readiness to visit the checkpoint for objective estimation of the fulfillment of conditions for their opening.
The pro-Russian militants still block way through five checkpoints in Donbas. For a few months, Shchastya, Zolote, Hnutove, Mayorsk and Mariinka checkpoints are closed. The admission of people is held only at Stanytsia Luhanska checkpoint. At Novotroitske checkpoint, the militants block the movement twice a week – on Monday and Friday.
