Our residents, citizens of Ukraine, crossed the border at the checkpoint” Chugunovka “, and then they were taken to Belgorod, later they passed the so-called filtration camps. Russian special services communicated with them, and further fate in the territory of the Russian Federation was decided.

Some of these people went to relatives they have in Russia. Some people crossed the border with the EU in the Baltic countries, and through Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, and Poland, they were able to return to Ukraine. “
