The same heating points Red Cross is going to install near the checkpoint at non-government controlled territory.
“In winter, the temperature drops to -13-15 degrees on the frontline in the east of Ukraine. For example, yesterday, when we were installing heating points at the checkpoint in Stanitsa Luhanska the temperature dropped – 13. The same heating points we set on the other side of the checkpoint. Heating is very important for people waiting in long queues at the checkpoint. According to media daily 5000 people cross the checkpoint”, – said in a statement.
