On June 22, the pass began for citizens wishing to go to Ukraine’s territory through the Elenovka checkpoint. We welcome the fact that the Ukrainian authorities did not follow the usual path and made a humane decision to let people through the Novotroitskoe checkpoint.

We thank all the international organizations that have influenced the Kiev representatives for their help and assistance in this matter. We hope that the next stage of the resumption of the work of the Elenovka checkpoint - the pass for those wishing to enter the Republic according to the lists of the Interdepartmental Headquarters - will also begin without provocation from the Ukrainian side. “However, the Ukrainian side, to everyone’s bewilderment managed to find the most incredible excuses even today, so as not to approve and sign the list of measures” - Natalia Nikonorova summed up.
