Russian troops and representatives of the "DNR" occupation authorities do not allow civilians to cross the demarcation line at the Marinka checkpoint in any direction. This was reported by the press center of the JFO headquarters.
It is noted that the Marinka checkpoint still does not function due to the fault of the occupiers, who block all the attempts by citizens to get to their homes or leave the zone of occupation.
"The occupiers demonstrate complete indifference to the problems of civilians. An egregious example of cynical treatment of civilians is that Russian mercenaries have been holding two people in their cars in front of their checkpoint for more than three days, stubbornly preventing them from going home. People cannot break through the wall of indifference of Russian mercenaries until now", - the JFO notes.
In turn, Ukrainian border guards from the Joint Forces, if necessary, are ready to ensure the return of these citizens back to the territory controlled by the government of Ukraine.
Earlier, on June 13, a pedestrian crossing started its work at the Stanytsia Luhanska checkpoint of entry and exit. Russian armed formations were forced to partially unblock the humanitarian corridor with temporarily occupied Luhansk. 180 citizens crossed the demarcation line there on June 14: 75 into the territory controlled by the government of Ukraine and 105 in the opposite direction.
As previously reported, the passage of persons and vehicles in the area of the Joint Forces Operation was restored through the Marinka and Stanytsia Luhanska checkpoints. However, such a movement was hindered by the occupation administrations.
