"The control over movement of goods and cargo, including those crossing the ATO area entry/exit control points, was significantly increased according to the tasks defined by the President of Ukraine," the speaker said.
According to him, the trucks transporting coal were prohibited to enter at the checkpoint near Artemivsk because they did not have shipping documents.
"However, two trucks tried to pass without control. They were accompanied by a Ford, in which there were two men in military uniforms. The men acted out of line and refused to identify themselves," Lysenko said.
The speaker said that another incident occurred near Shchastia in Luhansk: two trucks trying to enter the territory controlled by the militants without shipping documents were detained.
"Some part of the cargo consisted of cigarettes and food of unknown origin and expiry date. The rest of the cargo was alcoholic beverages for the amount of over one million hryvnia," Lysenko said.
Also the MAZ truck carrying cargo of nearly 20 tons of sunflower seeds was denied access at the checkpoint near Mariupol.
"The vehicle was handed over to the fiscal service officers," the NSDC Information Analysis Center speaker said.
