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, occupationists once again stopped passengers’ passing in front of the entry-exit check point "Kalanchak."
Consequently, the passing at the entry-exit checkpoint "Chongar" is being carried out roundtrip but rather slowly. Controlling authorities of the occupationist-state 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 enforcers are not performing the passing procedures on this direction.
At the same time, there is no significant traffic congestion within entry-exit checkpoint at the boundary line. Not more than 100 of vehicles are expecting in the queues at the entry-exit checkpoints "Chongar" and "Chaplynka".
High activity of an aggressor-state Russia is observed thereabout the boundary line. Ukrainian border guards viewed 9 helicopters Mi-8 of the Russian Armed Forces as well as 2 unmanned aerial vehicles flights above the peninsula.
