On December 3, Russian mercenaries opened fire in Donbas nine times. None of Ukrainian warriors were wounded or killed in action.
Meanwhile, 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.
