We know how much there is now a complex environment, there are huge queues of people and vehicles. The movement of heavy vehicles Staff can paralyze the work of the checkpoint for some time. At the same time, we realize how much we are waiting for our help people. Therefore, the management Staff decided to send a convoy with humanitarian aid, dividing it into two parts,” said Rimma Fil.
