Verkhovna Rada MP Volodymyr Parasiuk said on Facebook, Censor.NET reports.
"I don't know who did it, but I am convinced they were concerned Ukrainians who are sick and tired of the war. No one will go anywhere anymore," the deputy wrote and posted several photos.
According to the headquarters of the blockade against trade with occupants, the damaged railroad tracks are part of the Luhansk-Popasna line.
"The police came to Redut Bohdana [railroad checkpoint set up by blockade participants]. Half a kilometer from the checkpoint, some "well-wishers" cut the rails. The headquarters of the blockade against trade with occupants has nothing to do with the incident. Both the headquarters and the activists have no technical means for such an action. Moreover, it makes no sense as the line is blocked anyway," the statement notes.
On Jan. 25, anti-terrorist operation (ATO) veterans blocked the Luhansk-Popasna haul, launching a trade blockade of the occupied Donbas areas.
In late December 2016, ATO veterans announced the beginning of an economic blockade of the so-called "Donetsk and Luhansk People's Republics." Yurii Zolkin, the head of the Stanytsia Luhanska State District Administration, supported the blockade, with a reservation that the ban should apply only to dual use goods.
Deputy Minister for Occupied Territories and IDPs Heorhii Tuka said the actions of the activists are not legal.
Vadym Chernysh, minister of the occupied territories and IDP's, opposed barring the transportation of goods across the contact line in the Donbas: "We need to be able to move coal, otherwise we'll have a nationwide problem."
