19:11, 13 August 2019

Stanytsia Luhanska checkpoint will be working by the abridged schedule. According to Ukraine's State Border Guard Service, the checkpoint is to open at 6 a.m and will close at 6 p.m. This is for security reasons, as mine clearing works around the checkpoint are underway.

The Border Guards added they would not let anyone cross the checkpoint after it closes. The combat engineers have been working there for several days now. The mine clearance works are taking place within the agreement of Minsk talks group parties.

Then, as the area is cleared of the explosives, the pedestrian passage at the checkpoint will be restored.
