The situation at entry-exit checkpoints on the boundary line
with the temporarily occupied Autonomous republic of Crimea remains rather
tense but controlled.
After the midnight, on August 8th, occupation
forces once again stopped passengers’ passing in front of the entry-exit check
Consequently, the passing at the entry-exit checkpoint
"Chongar" is being carried out roundtrip
but rather slowly. Controlling authorities of the occupies territory are
performing passing procedures in front of the entry-exit checkpoint “Chaplynka” only concerning individuals who are heading for
the temporarily occupied peninsula. The entry-exit checkpoint "Kalanchak" still remains completely blocked – Russian
law enforcement agencies are not performing the passing procedures on this
At the same time, there is no significant traffic congestion
within entry-exit checkpoint at the boundary line. Not more than 100 vehicles
are expecting in the queues at the entry-exit checkpoints "Chongar" and "Chaplynka".
High activity of the aggressor state - Russia is observed
thereabout the boundary line. Ukrainian border guards observed 9 helicopters
Mi-8 of the Russian Armed Forces as well as 2 unmanned aerial vehicles flights
above the peninsula.
