The problem is that George Tuka opened pedestrian checkpoint in Stanytsia Luhanska, but we would like them to open the checkpoint for vehicles also, because half of the cars at our checkpoints are with plates of Lugansk Region. After that we will probably open new check point in Avdiivka.

– Pavlo Zhebrivskyi

Right now ATO Staff together with Border Guard Service and Donetsk Regional Administration are thinking about increasing the capacity of “Hnutove” checkpoint located near Mariupol and plan to open checkpoint near Lysychansk in Lugansk Region.
