The Head of the "DPR" terrorist formation Aleksandr Zakharchenko, under his illegal "decree", assigned the line of demarcation in Donbas a status of the "state border of the Donetsk People’s Republic", ZN.UA informed with reference to the Kremlin-controlled news agencies.
Reportedly, the leader of the ORDLO militants signed the corresponding "decree" in February, but the details became known only now.
“To prohibit the crossing for individuals outside the border control points of the Border Guard Service of the Ministry of State Security of the Donetsk People's Republic. It is compulsory for individuals to register at border control points when crossing the contact line," the illegitimate document says.
Sources in the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine in the comments to the press noted that this decision of terrorists is "raising rates" and may lead to a new escalation in the Donbas. It is noted that Zakharchenko's "decree" contradicts the spirit of the Minsk agreements.
Earlier QHA reported, that on the night of March 1, pro-Russian terrorists announced the introduction of their own "administrations" at Ukrainian enterprises in the ORDLO. Militants have notified that from now on "taxes from these enterprises will go into the budget of the republics", that is, the illegal "DPR" and "LPR". The official representative of the European Commission Maja Kocijancic, stated that seizure of Ukrainian companies and the introduction of foreign currency by the terrorists leaders in the occupied territories of the East of Ukraine are legally void and are a disregard for the peace agreements reached.
