As of now, it is too early to talk about the opening of the entry-exit checkpoint in Donbas, as the deadlines are tied to the lockdown in Ukraine. This was stated by President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky during a visit to Luhansk region, RBC-Ukraine reports.

According to him, today it is too early to talk about the opening of checkpoints on the demarcation line.

"I will tell you frankly, it is hard for me to talk about the terms now because they are related to the quarantine measures that are taking place in our country. Both Stanytsia Luhanska and Zolote are parts of our country. This is all information about entry-exit checkpoints there is," Zelensky remarked.

As we reported earlier, according to Ukrane's President Volodymyr Zelensky, Ukraine should gradually withdraw from the lockdown as a premature end may have shocking consequences.

"If we return to the usual rhythm of life tomorrow, it is potentially plus 120,000 deaths by the end of the year. That is why the easing of the quarantine cannot be premature," he said.
