KIEV, January 3. /TASS/. Ukraine’s National Security and Defence Council has restricted traffic across the line separating Kiev troops and militias (of the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics) in the area of combat operation in the country’s southeast, the council’s Secretary Alexander Turchinov said on Saturday.
“Seven transport corridors have been put up across the engagement line while all the other routes have been blocked,” he said specifying that all vehicles and people that would make attempts to cross these corridors would be “thoroughly checked.”
On Saturday Turchinov paid a visit to Ukrainian forces’ frontline and held an operative meeting in the village of Peski near Donetsk airport.
