Representatives of certain territories of the Luhansk region of Ukraine dismantled a roadblock on the part of the bridge controlled by them near Stanytsia Luhanska. Hence, Ukraine is beginning to rebuild the crossing. It was stated by President Volodymyr Zelenskyy during a meeting with the leadership of the Verkhovna Rada, the Cabinet of Ministers and the law enforcement agencies.

“We have got small victories, achievements. The roadblock in the occupied part of Stanytsia Luhanska has finally been dismantled. Congratulations to our group dealing with this strategic priority. We are beginning to build a bridge in Stanytsia Luhanska,” the Head of State said.

The reconstruction of the bridge over the Siverskyi Donets in the area of Stanytsia ​​Luhanska is part of Ukraine's international commitments to improve the humanitarian situation on the delimitation line. On July 7, as part of a working visit, President Volodymyr Zelenskyy visited Stanytsia ​​Luhanska and passed the zero position of the Ukrainian Armed Forces going more than half a kilometer deep into the delimitation zone. Together with President of the European Council Donald Tusk, the Head of State passed the outermost point of our military and reached the destroyed bridge, through which people cross the line of delimitation.

The President stated that Ukraine was ready to quickly rebuild the bridge as soon as representatives of the illegal armed groups dismantled their fortifications.
