KIEV, April 8. /TASS/. Head of the Luhansk military-civilian administration Gennady Moskal has ordered to ban selling alcohol to the military in border regions and in cities of the self-proclaimed Luhansk People’s Republic (LPR), the press service of LPR head said on Wednesday.
With the aim of minimizing the risk of terrorist attacks, protecting national security and preventing offenses in the region, "the presence of foreigners without registration is prohibited, along with presence of people without documents in settlements from 10pm until 5am (local time), long stops of vehicles, etc."
Temporary regime restrictions are introduced in nine out of 19 districts in the Luhansk region bordering on Russia. Selling alcohol to the military is also prohibited in three towns under the regional jurisdiction — Severodonetsk, Lisichansk and Rubezhny.
A similar measure was introduced in the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic in March. Chairman of the Donetsk military-civilian administration Alexander Kikhtenko said that he prohibited the sale of alcoholic and low-alcohol beverages to all Ukrainian soldiers.
Kikhtenko said that the outlets that sell alcohol to the military should be stripped of the license and inspected.
Previous reports said that a law providing for a fine of $4,500 to $10,000 or a 10-day arrest for the consumption of alcohol by Ukrainian military was put into effect in Ukraine.
