All checkpoints on Russian-Ukraine border, except for those closed by govt, working normally - Ukrainian Border Guard
The Ukrainian State Border Guard Service has reported that all checkpoints on the Russian-Ukrainian border are working normally.
"All checkpoints are working normally, with the exception of those closed by the Ukrainian Cabinet of Ministers," the press service for the Ukrainian Border Guard Service told Interfax-Ukraine.
According to the report, citizens and road vehicles are moving through the checkpoints without any restrictions.
In early June, the Ukrainian Cabinet approved the decision to close eight checkpoints on the Ukrainian-Russian border in Luhansk and Donetsk regions. In accordance with the decision, the following checkpoints were closed: Dolzhansky (Luhansk region), Chervonopartyzansk (Luhansk region), Chervona Mohyla (Luhansk region), Novoborovtsi (Luhansk region), Krasnodarsky (Donetsk), Krasnodarsky (Nizhny Shvyriov), Severny, and Marynivka (Donetsk region).
A source in the Russian Border Guard Service told Interfax-Ukraine earlier on Friday that Ukrainian border guards had unilaterally closed the checkpoint Schebekino-Pletenivka (Belhorod region) to citizens, citing border demarcation.
