KIEV, January 3. /TASS/. Vice Speaker of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic /DPR/ Denis Pushilin dismissed as populist the decision of Secretary of Ukraine’s National Security and Defence Council Alexander Turchinov to confine traffic across the line separating Kiev’s troops and militias /of the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics/in the area of combat operation in the country’s southeast to seven corridors.
“Turchinov declared that seven transport corridors had been set up across the line of contact while all the other routes would be blocked,” the Donetsk news agency cited Pushilin as saying. “This decision made public by Turchinov is of a populist character and has no logical underpinning. Peaceful civilians will be those to suffer.”
Earlier in the day, Turchinov paid a visit to Ukrainian forces’ frontline and held an operative meeting in the village of Peski near Donetsk airport.
“Seven transport corridors have been put up across the contact line while all the other routes have been blocked,” he said specifying that all vehicles and people that would make attempts to traverse these corridors would be “thoroughly checked.”.
