Ukraine consistently implements the agreements of the H4 Summit in Paris and the agreements based on the results of consultations in the Trilateral Contact Group (Ukraine, Russia, OSCE) and the opening of the EECP is another step in this. In fact, according to the agreement, the simultaneous opening of two new EECPs in Shchastia and Zolote cities had to be carried out on November 10. Ukraine has fully implemented the agreements.

The occupation administrations, controlled by the Russian Federation, continue to block the EECP and did not allowed a single person to cross. According to persons who returned to the GCA, the militants controlled by the Russian Federation didn’t allow them to cross the EECP "Shchastia", explaining that the EECP was not ready and that "there was no team" on the site.
"We see that the reached agreements have been violated. Not only the EECP, but also a service center in Shchastia city, where bank branch of "Oschadbank" is ready to pay pensions and social benefits, was opened today from the side of GCA. People have been waiting for this opening and it should be synchronized, but Russia has once again demonstrated its attitude to the citizens and the agreements of the Normandy Quartet and the Trilateral Contact Group," said Oleksii Reznikov, Deputy Prime Minister of Ukraine, Minister for Reintegration of TOT of Ukraine.
