KIEV – Ukraine’s government has closed several checkpoints on the border with Russia in the Lugansk and Donetsk regions, explaining the measure by public security considerations.

“To prevent the emergence of threats to the population’s life or health as a result of dangerous events taking place in certain areas, the cabinet agreed with the State Border Service’s proposal to stop the operation of checkpoints,” the government press service said in a press release on Thursday.

In Ukraine’s Lugansk region, the operation of the following checkpoints has been stopped: Dolzhansky, Chervonopartizansk, Krasnaya Mogila, Novoborovtsy and Severny. In the Donetsk region, the Marinovka checkpoint will be closed.

The Ukrainian government has instructed the Foreign Ministry to inform Russia about the decision.
