"An official ceremony to open the crossing point in the village of Stanytsia Luhanska is scheduled for next Tuesday, and all of the services have already been prepared for this," the report says.

Tuka said that the postponement of the opening of the crossing point would not affect safety during the local elections.

"We have already agreed the establishment of two additional posts in the directions of Stanytsia Luhanska – Sievierodonetsk and Stanytsia Luhanska – Bilokurakyne," he said.

As reported earlier, Luhansk region's heads postponed the opening of a pedestrian crossing point on the demarcation line because of the threat of militant provocations.
