The passage of people and transport through the contact line within the existing humanitarian road corridor "Novoazovsk - Pokrovsk - Talakivka - Mariupol" was suspended on April 5, according to the press center of Ukraine's Joint Forces Operation.

"In a short period of time, we have managed to replace the road pavement on the territory of the checkpoint and in its immediate vicinity, equipped shelters for civilians and workers of control services. Work continues on the installation of control modules, pavilions, and other amenities for citizens and their connection to relevant communications," reads the report.

The headquarters noted that carrying out the full scope of the planned work on the arrangement of the Hnutove checkpoint would create comfortable conditions for crossing the contact line at any time of the year and increase its pass-through function.
