Reports from the territory controlled by Ukraine
Residents of the settlement of Zhovanka near occupied Horlivka, the Donetsk region, are in a critical situation because of the closure of Mayorsk checkpoint, according to a DPTV correspondent. 200 people are living there under everyday shelling. They cannot leave for the towns nearby as the settlement is controlled by Ukrainian militaries, but the people are registered in occupied Horlivka. It means that if they want to leave Zhovanka or to come back to it, they need a permit, but the checkpoint is closed.
A citizen of Ukraine did not observe the rules trying to take his goods via checkpoint Novotroyitske. He offered 100 hryvnyas to the border guards for them to allow him to cross the demarcation line. The fact of bribing was registered and the man was transferred to Volnovakha police department, the Donetsk region.
