Transport connection with the annexed Crimea was limited due to the Russian military exercises.
This was reported by the Deputy Minister on the temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine George Tuka.
“The occupation authorities in Crimea have started the so-called military exercises, which are taking place exactly near the boundary line. According to the information from the other side the border crossing points have been closed in order not to put civilians in jeopardy,” he said.
The passenger flow at the administrative border between Crimea and Ukraine was suspended and sometime after that partially restored on the previous August 7.
Eyewitnesses report about checkpoints with armed Russian enforcers in some regions of Crimea.
