ALL EECP ON THE LINE WITH THE OCCUPIED TERRITORIES WILL BE EQUIPPED WITH A SERVICE CENTER
EECP on the contact line with the temporarily occupied territories in Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts and on the administrative line with the temporarily occupied Crimean Peninsula will be equipped with service centers. First Deputy Minister for Reintegration of the Temporary Occupied Territories Rostyslav Zamlynskyi stated the aforementioned on TV channel "Dom".
He noted that these service centers are planned to have pharmacies, small shops, baby rooms, mobile centers for provision of administrative services, mobile units of "Oschadbank", and the like. In addition, at these service centers citizens from the temporarily occupied territories will be able to receive social and legal assistance, obtain documents, and use a secure Internet connection. A transport and logistics infrastructure will be provided near each EECP to enable citizens to reach their destination in the Government-controlled territory without hindrance or delay. A separate, established state enterprise will equip and provide proper conditions for service centers.
“We are aware that all of our temporarily occupied territories will still be transferred to the full jurisdiction of the Ukrainian Government. Therefore, these are not stationary EECP. We assume that these will be modular structures, and we want them to be moved from the contact line to the border between Ukraine and the Russian Federation in the near future,” said Rostyslav Zamlynskyi.
He noted that recently the occupation administrations have artificially restricted the work of the EECP that operate in non-Government controlled areas, reducing the time for crossing of EECP, and some EECP are closing down at all, although the Government is making every effort to make it convenient and safe for Ukrainian citizens to get to the Government-controlled territories.
“I understand that the better situation we have, the more the occupation regimes will certainly do to make it worse for our people. But on the Government-controlled territory of Ukraine, we do everything with people in mind,” added Rostyslav Zamlynskyi.
Currently, there are 8 EECP on the line with the temporarily occupied territories in Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts and on the administration line with the temporarily occupied Crimea: four of them are EECP in Donetsk oblast (Hnutove, Maiorske, Mariinka, Novotroitske), one EECP in Luhansk oblast (Stanytsia Luhanska) and three EECP on the administration line with Crimea (Kalanchak, Chaplynka, Chonhar).
