"According to a decision issued by Commander of the Joint Forces of Ukraine Serhiy Nayev, 46 people have been evacuated from the gray zone. They are now crossing the Mayorsk entry-exit checkpoint. All services worked at night," he wrote on Facebook.

As reported earlier, the Russian-led forces staged a provocation in Donetsk region, having let 46 people enter the Ukrainian-controlled territory when a checkpoint on the Ukrainian side was closed. They knew that the Ukrainian government had closed the Mayorsk checkpoint. Thus, the people were abandoned in the so-called "gray zone."
