Mayorsk EEC Has Started Working, But When Will It Be Friendly to People?


Today EEC Mayorsk has started working.

According to the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine, the decision to transfer the checkpoint of Zaytseve closer to the demarcation line was taken to strengthen the control over the movement of people, vehicles and trucks.

The employees of the CF “Right to Protection” office in Slovyansk inform that Zaytseve EEC will be closed today. But there were more than 1.5 thousand people near it on October 21st in the morning.

Currently those who cross the demarcation line by car are going to Mayorsk EEC on their own. Buses have been sent for other people.

Note that Mayorsk EEC is hardly ready to let people through: there is only one MES tent set, but it’s empty – there are no lights even; the road is filled with rubble, which complicates the movement of the elderly and parents with children.
