Ukraine's State Border Guard Service has announced that all entry/exit checkpoints along the contact line in Donbas, eastern Ukraine, will change their schedule from March 1.

"As of March 1, 2020, by decision of the Joint Forces Commander, all entry and exit checkpoints along the contact line will switch over to the spring mode of operation, which means a new schedule has been introduced. In particular, persons and vehicles will be checked out daily from 07:00 to 18:30. Thus, the operating time of the checkpoints will be extended, since they worked from 08:00 to 17:00 in winter," the agency's press service said.

The State Border Guard Service urged citizens to take this information into account when planning their trips and crossing the contact line through the checkpoints.
