In the second instalment of our series of reports from Eastern Ukraine, we joined a special unit from the Ukrainian Ministry of Interior that guards one of the so-called blockposts – checkpoints that separate the war zone from the "civilian" parts of Ukrainian territory. The garrison of the blockpost is tasked with monitoring the movement of civilians and preventing the trafficking of weapons and other unlawful elements. Watch the following report to see what a typical night shift on the checkpoint looks like.
