Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko announced that Ukrainian side may lift cargo transportation ban along delimitation line in the East of the country if enterprises on the occupied territories of Donbas are returned to its Ukrainian owners and ceasefire regime is implemented. He said this in an interview to Ukrainian channels, according to Interfax-Ukraine.
"We are saying: return enterprises to Ukrainian owners, no matter if it’s state form of ownership or not. As the state ownership was also seized. Ensure first and second points of the Minsk agreement — cease fire and disengagement, and we will lift restricting measures to transport freight along delimitation line," he said.
President reminded that the seizure of Ukrainian enterprises occurred in a few days and forceful change of ownership in these companies was announced on Wednesday.
As it was reported earlier today, all cargo transportation through demarcation line in Donbas was halted by the decision of National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine.
