On April 6, two entry-exit checkpoints Hnutove and Mariinka are closed in the Donbas conflict zone. The press service of the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine reports this.
“The entry-exit checkpoint Hnutove is closed for reconstructions. That is why the passage through the corridor Novoazovsk-Hnutove-Talakivka-Mariupol is stopped. The maintenance work will be conducted until April 8,” the report said.
Besides, the pass of persons and vehicles through the checkpoint Mariinka is stopped as well. The reason for this is yesterday’s shelling of the Mariinka checkpoint. The decision to open the entry-exit checkpoint will be accepted additionally.
Other entry-exit checkpoints are working within the schedule.

According to the report, dozens of civilians, including children were at the checkpoint during the attack. The enemy opened fire six times
