Huge queues at the checkpoints in Donbas worry people three times more than the threat of shellfire at the checkpoints. It is evidenced by the results of a poll of citizens during monitoring of the checkpoints in Donetsk region in the framework of Frontal inspection project conducted by Fundatsiya.101 public organization.
It is noted that 78% of respondents are worried by queues at the checkpoint. At the same time, the threat of attacks worried only 27% of the respondents. But conditions in the queues at checkpoints concern only 18% of citizens.
The most frequent reasons why people cross the demarcation line are a trip to relatives (39%), shopping (29%) and document issues (26%).
In addition, 15% of respondents who travel by car reported that they had encountered cases where they could not cross the contact line and had to go back.
