It was noted that for June 2017, the administrative border in both directions was crossed by citizens less than in the same period last year by 13%, and vehicles - less by 21%.

"A similar situation is in July, when during two weeks, there are already less by 13% citizens and cars - by 27% than for the same period in 2016. At the same time, the occupation services continue to artificially create queues in front of checkpoints. Because of such provocative actions, citizens are forced to stand idly for several hours.
