The residents of CADO are more concerned about the problem of blocking the crossing of the demarcation line with the free territories of Ukraine by the "DNR" occupiers. These are the results of a poll conducted in one of the separatist publics about the main issue for the "direct line" with leader of the "DNR" Denis Pushilin, scheduled for December 15.
Almost a quarter of the respondents are concerned about opening of the "border" from the territory of the Donetsk oblast controlled by the Ukrainian authorities. In second place in terms of urgency, residents of the occupied Donbas called the problem of low pensions and wages, as well as delays in wage payments.
Only 4% of the respondents are interested in the "DNR" leader's assessment of the imitation of the "DNR" occupiers' participation in the Minsk process.
Despite the fact that the "DNR" occupiers constantly accuse Ukraine of the problem of crossing the demarcation line, the fact that all checkpoints are open on the Ukrainian side remains. It was the "DNR" that introduced a special access mode - twice a week according to special lists approved by the "covid headquarters of the DNR". At the same time, the occupation authorities ignore the current schemes of carriers, who organized travel directions from the "DNR" to the free territory of Ukraine through Russia at a price of about $100.
In addition, about 100 thousand Ukrainians in CADO have expired Oschadbank cards today. So far, the bank has extended their validity until January 1, 2021.
Furthermore, the issue of the shortage of drugs vital for the treatment of patients with coronavirus infection has not been resolved in the occupied territory of Donetsk region for a long time, while there are no problems with drugs in the free territory of the region, and the prices in pharmacies are much lower.
Opening of the "border" is also awaited by students who study at Ukrainian universities and are forced to study remotely until the occupiers allow free crossing of the demarcation line.
