Locals proposed to spend a night for 50-70 UAH for those who did not manage to cross Stanitsa Luhanska checkpoint. For this purpose people specially equipped basements and placed beds there.
– Many people stayed overnight as the flow of crossings is extremely big. The rescuers also offer tents for the night but, in fact, it was impossible to accommodate everyone. Some people had to buy a place for 200-250 UAH in a queue to cross the checkpoint in time. People were waiting for eight hours in the queues,” – a local resident said.
Huge queues are also observed at the checkpoints of “LPR”. As the crossings admitted there were no any conditions to wait for so long on both side of the contact line.
The queues occurred due to the identification procedures for IDPs to confirm their identity to receive the social payments and pensions.
Due to the worsening the situation extra security measures reportedly were introduced in Donetsk and Luhansk regions.
