THE GOVERNMENT ADOPTED A DECREE TO DEFER THE ENTRY INTO FORCE OF THE NEW RULES FOR EECP CROSSING PROCEDURES, IN PARTICULAR, FOR CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF 14
The Government adopted a decree to defer the entry into force of the new rules for crossing exit-entry check points (EECP) between temporarily occupied territories and Government controlled areas, in particular for children under the age of 14.
Following the new rules, when crossing the contact line, children need to carry a passport for travelling abroad.
Within a month, the Ministry for Veterans Affairs will work on the issue of crossing to take the next steps in this direction.
«The Prime Minister gave us the task to work out a regulation within a month, taking into account all security issues, would be comfortable for citizens and could be implemented on an ongoing basis», ‒ said Oksana Koliada, Minister for Veterans Affairs, TOT and IDPs.
The Government adopted Resolution No. 887 from October 16, 2019, in particular, on deferring the entry into force of Resolution No. 815. Thus, the entry into force of new rules for crossing exit-entry check points is deferred for a month.
The decision to defer the entry into force of the Resolution No. 815 was initiated by the Ministry for Veterans Affairs during a meeting of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine.
