Ukraine's ground transport safety authority Ukrtransinspektsiya banned passenger transportation in the areas where the counter-terrorist operation is being conducted.
State authority for transport safety Ukrtransinspektsiya has ordered to suspend passenger transportation in the areas of Donetsk and Luhansk regions where the counter-terrorist operation is being conducted.
The authority's press service agency reported the news on Tuesday.
"Effective from January 6, 2015 the authority suspends ticket sales and passenger transportation on bus scheduled routes to destinations located in the areas where the counter-terrorist operation is being conducted. Transportation is suspended in order to avoid endangering passengers' lives and well-being," the statement reads.
As it was previously reported, car and rail traffic going to the temporarily occupied Autonomous Republic of Crimea was suspended in late 2014.
