The situation with the border crossings in Lugansk.

On June 5th an official message appeared from the Ukrainian government that 8 border crossings with Russia would be closed. Yet one of those Izvaryne is still in Ukrainian control and at Marynivka still fighting seems to be going on.

To exactly see the situation with the different border posts, here is a detailed overview with the latest information that I could find about them.
(If you see any errors, or have additions please tweet me @DJP3tros and I will adjust.)


Blue = border with Russia
Red question marks = crossing possible without control?

5-6 Heavy fighting at this borderpost. See report about it.
