We are opening another really European checkpoint.Two and a half months ago I saw very long lines of people, people were sleeping at night at the sides of the road. Together with Border Guard Service of Ukraine I ordered to increase the capacity of the checkpoint. so our citizens who live on temporarily occupied territories would not suffer like that.

– Pavlo Zhebrivskyi

He also noted that moving the checkpoint from Bugas village to Novotroitske allowed to get over 30 thousand of people out of a “grey zone”. Also the capacity was increased almost three times as the number of border guards was increased and four lines of the road are used. In 24 hours military check documents of about 7 thousand of people.

Deputy Head of State Border Guard Service of Ukraine Vasyl Servatyuk said that soon there will be another modernized checkpoint opened in Kurakhove direction. After that border guards will start to work in Hnutove village. The experience of Donetsk Region is planned to be used in Lugansk Region as well.

We want to change ideology of checkpoints, so people can understand that there are standards when law-abiding citizens of Ukraine don’t even notice how they cross the contact line. There should be no lines of people, people must be treated in a friendly way and served fast. We invite local population to take part in a work of the checkpoint, we already selected people and train them. Later those guys will return with different attitude and realize their responsibility. Only together we can fulfill the tasks of out Government, the President and the country.

– Vasyl Servatyuk

The head of Donetsk Region also said that humanitarian logistics center “Novotroitske” built using experience of previous center near Atremivsk city which was open on August 28. This logistics center also has pharmacy, bulletproof department of “Oschadbank” Bank, post office of Ukrposhta, local manufactures sell their products here.

Here it is even better than at logistics center “Zaitseve”, because we took into account previous mistakes. The pharmacy has more products. Today the head of District Administration asked about possibility of putting notary office here, so people can register property rights, register a child and so on.

Pavlo Zhebrivskyi denied that opening of modern checkpoint means setting up new borders of Ukraine.

There is no new border. This is a contact line between temporary occupied and Ukraine controlled territories. We hope and we are sure that soon the control over all part of the border will be restored. It’s just that regional authorities try to do everything in a good way. In future logistics center can be uses for wholesale trade of agricultural products.
