The ban to transport goods across the delimitation line in Donbas will be cancelled on two conditions: when all the enterprises in occupied territories return to Ukrainian owners and the ceasefire regime is followed.

This was announced by the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko in his interview for local channels. According to him, the militants seized property during several days and forcefully changed the owners.

Earlier National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine decided to forbid movement across the delimitation line in Donbas. The connection with the occupied territories was almost completely cut off.
