The Government of Ukraine has decided to resume the work of all entry-exit checkpoints on the administrative border with the annexed Crimea and the city of Sevastopol. The relevant decision was made by the Cabinet of Ministers at an extraordinary meeting, the press service of Ukraine's Ministry for Reintegration of the Temporarily Occupied Territories reports.
It is reported that Kalanchak, Chongar and Chaplinka checkpoints will resume their activities on June 15, 2020.
"A number of consultations were held with the Permanent Representative of the President of Ukraine in the Autonomous Republic of Crimea, with representatives of the public and international organizations on the situation on the administrative border with Crimea. The result of the talks was a decision to resume the work of checkpoints starting from June 15," Minister Oleksiy Reznikov stated.
As we reported earlier, the self-proclaimed Luhansk People’s Republic stated that it was not going to open the checkpoints in Donbas despite the intentions of the Ukrainian side.
“As the official representative in the humanitarian group, I publicly declare that the checkpoint in Stanytsia Luhanska will not work tomorrow. We consider the statement of Ukraine as another provocation. It was the unilateral statement,” so-called representative of the militants Olga Kobtseva stated.
