Citizens arriving in the occupied territory of the Donetsk region from the territory controlled by Ukraine will be immediately embused and sent to hospitals for a two-week observation. This was stated by the so-called "Minister of Health of the DNR" Olga Dolgoshapko, - separatist media reported. "When people enter the "DNR", they will be met at the Olenivka checkpoint and transported directly from there to a hospital in Donetsk, where they will be quarantined. Places have been allocated, the staff is ready", - the "minister" said. According to her, after two weeks of being under the observation and with a negative test for coronavirus, people will be able to return home. At the same time, the "minister" made it clear that the number of citizens who will be allowed to enter the occupied territory would be controlled, since the number of beds for observation is not enough for everyone.
Buses do not run between the Olenivka and Novotroitske checkpoints, which began to work on June 22, that is why people have to walk several kilometers. Coordinator for the protection of the Right to Protection Charitable Fund Volodymyr Oleksenko reported this in a comment to OstroV. "The pass was carried out only in one direction: from the uncontrolled territory to the controlled territory. There was an attempt to drive the car to the uncontrolled territory, but it returned back. There were also problems with buses that transported people from the uncontrolled territory to "zero". People had to overcome this distance on foot , and this is about 5 km", - he reported. According to him, many people refused to cross the checkpoint due to the fact that they would have to be self-isolated for two weeks. "They were coming back (to CADO - ed.). Someone was coming back because there was no technical possibility to install the application "Act at home", - Oleksenko said.
The "DNR" occupiers showed complete inability to organize the normal unilateral work of the Olenivka checkpoint, opened by them on the road corridor from the territory controlled by Ukraine. This was reported on social networks by eyewitnesses trying to cross the line of contact. The so-called "border guards" and "customs officers" were not prepared for the fact that a large number of people would want to take the opportunity to leave the occupied territory on the very first day. Focusing in process, local security officials stated that a limit was introduced on the number of vehicles and citizens who were allowed into the controlled territory. "I was with a child of 12 years old. They returned us to the "DNR", they said it was ordered to let 40 people pass every day. I want to cry because the boy was after the operation, but they did not change their decision. The mother is disabled… I do not know what to do. 40 people a day - what is that? Just for fun…", - one of the eyewitnesses wrote. In addition, the occupation authorities "forgot" to prepare buses at the Olenivka checkpoint to transport people through the gray zone to the Ukrainian checkpoint. The "DNR" opens the border (the contact line - OstroV) unilaterally and does not provide buses to transport people through the gray zone. At the same time, they transport from the Ukrainian zero, even if there are only four people inside", - the eyewitnesses were outraged". A friend is in line on foot. People went on the assault on foot, as they did not let anyone out. The "DNR" blocked the road with cars and assault rifles, and the automobile line was blocked by buses", - they told. "Jesus, poor people! I look and cry. Did the Donetsk authorities go out of mind? Are there no more buses in Donetsk? The "DNR" authorities were one hundred percent sure that Ukraine would act like the "DNR" in Marinka and would not open the checkpoint", - citizens who visited occupied Olenivka summarize.
Passing people to the occupied part of Donetsk oblast is possible according to special lists and subject to a two-week observation in medical institutions. This was said in the message of the so-called "headquarters for the prevention of coronavirus". It was noted that citizens who will prove by document that they will be treated, will study or work in CADO would be able to enter the occupied part of Donetsk oblast. In addition, the occupiers agreed to let in those who would take care of the sick or decide to return to the occupied territory to their family for permanent residence. This category of entrants must also submit supporting documents. Those who have all the relevant documents must submit an application to the occupation authorities indicating the appropriate grounds for entry. Application will be considered up to 10 business days. And there is no guarantee that the permission to enter CADO will be obtained.
