"Even 'lawmakers' in the 'DPR' have been shocked by a new decree by Zakharchenko, who forbade teachers, doctors and librarians to leave Donbas and enter Ukraine," Kazansky wrote on Facebook and posted a screenshot of the Facebook page of Anastasia Selivanova, "member of the People's Council of the DPR."

Teachers and doctors will not be able to visit their relatives living in areas controlled by Ukraine.
