Russia informally tightens border crossing regime for Ukrainians


During the day, Russian border guards barred 81 citizens of Ukraine from passing through the Troyebortnoye checkpoint.

Spokesperson for the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine Oleh Slobodian wrote.

“It seems Russia has once again tightened the border crossing regime for Ukrainians. Of course, informally. During the day, Russian border guards denied passage through the Troyebortnoye checkpoint (in front of the Bachevsk checkpoint) to 81 citizens of Ukraine, citing alleged lack of proper cash collateral. However, only six Ukrainians received official refusals to cross the border,” he wrote.

“The State Border Guard Service of Ukraine has reported the situation to all concerned law enforcement agencies of the state and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs,” Slobodian added.
