The occupation services in Russian-annexed Crimea have completely stopped the movement of vehicles and pedestrians through the administrative border with the temporarily occupied peninsula, the State Border Service of Ukraine has reported.

"Tonight, at 01.30, the occupation services on the territory of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea completely stopped the movement of vehicles and pedestrians through the administrative border with the temporarily occupied peninsula," reads the statement.

The reasons for such actions are not known, because people from the peninsula are also not allowed to the cross the border.

Due to a rather low flow of passengers and vehicles, there were no lines of cars and queues of citizens as of 08.00, border guards said.

In connection with such a situation at the Chonhar, Kalanchak and Chaplynka checkpoints, the State Border Service of Ukraine asked citizens to take into account this information and refrain from trips to Crimea.
