Restrictions on crossing the entry-exit checkpoints through the demarcation line in Donetsk and Luhansk oblast in both directions are introduced from March 16 to April 3 by order of the Commander of the Joint Forces, - the press service of the Donetsk Regional State Administration reports.
The exception regarding the return to the territory controlled by the Ukrainian government is made only for citizens who have permanent registration in the territory controlled by Ukraine.
A pass to the temporarily occupied territory is only for citizens who live there.
"We draw your attention to the fact that now the Donetsk Regional State Administration is making every effort to resolve the issue of deferring verification in the social protection bodies of citizens of Ukraine living in the temporarily occupied territories", - the statement said.
It is noted that such measures are proactive work aimed at preventing the spread of diseases caused by Covid-19.
