Ukrainian border guards did not allow a German citizen to enter Ukraine when he was returning to his home country after visiting Crimea via Russia.
According to the press service of the Crimean border administration of Russia, a pensioner from Germany was detained while crossing the border of Crimea and Ukraine. The tourist entered the peninsula from Russia and planned to return to the EU via Ukraine.
As a reminder, according to the Ukrainian legislation, foreign citizens are allowed to enter the territory of Crimea through the Ukrainian checkpoints and under permission issued by the Ukrainian authorities only. Entering Crimea through the territory of Russia is violation of the order of visiting the temporary occupied territories and provides with administrative and criminal responsibility.
