Joint statement by the Ukraine NGO Forum on the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine draft resolution on movement of people and transfer of goods across the contact line // 22.08.2018

As a result of the armed conflict in eastern Ukraine, the State territory has been divided into government-controlled areas (GCA) and non-government controlled areas (NGCA) by a 500-km long front-line (the so-called “contact line”), with a system of entry-exit checkpoints (EECP) installed on both sides by the parties to the conflict.
People move through the contact line for family visits, to check on their property, to obtain their pension, to get documentation, or to access services, such as healthcare or education. However, due to the limitations imposed on crossing the contact line, and heavy bureaucratic requirements, every month hundreds of thousands of civilians struggle to cross the line that divides a once-integrated community.
