KIEV, January 31. /TASS/. Ukraine is looking at a temporary closure of crossing points along the line of engagement in Donbass, the press center of headquarters of Kiev’s force operation said on its Facebook account on Sunday.
"The command of the ATO [the so-called anti-terrorist operation in Donbass - TASS] forces in the Donetsk and Lugansk regions is looking at a possibility of temporary closure of crossing points with a relevant appeal to international organizations involved in the monitoring of the implementation of the Minsk agreements," the press center said, explaining the move by the aggravation of the situation in the area and possible provocations.
Ukraine’s state border service however reports active movement of people across the line of engagement. "The passenger and transport traffic at the crossing points has been intense," a spokesman for the border service said on Sunday, adding that the traffic had deceased over the past day.
