The occupiers closed the checkpoint in Vasylivka (Zaporizhia region) through which people could leave the TOT.
Recently, they introduced special passes for entering the temporarily occupied territories. Previously, entry was free. Departure with passes has been taking place since October 1, but the occupiers initially limited their issuance, and now they have stopped releasing even those who have them.
Therefore, the checkpoint does not work. Despite the statement of the collaborators, it is currently impossible to leave the TOT, just as it is to enter. That is, TOT has now become a prison in the open air, where the enemy uses people as human shields.
We will remind you that until October, Ukrainians were leaving the TOT in order of a live queue, passing checks at checkpoints. At that time, on average, about 2,000 people left per day. However, the Russians then issued exit passes, which are actually exit permits. Since then, the number of people allowed to leave the region has decreased many times. And if in October this figure was about 800 people per week, then in November the Russians released that many in a month.
