Over the past 24 hours, Ukraine's State Border Guard employees processed 37,500 people and 4,200 vehicles. The authority's press office reported that on Wednesday morning.
Two incidents occurred at Mayorske and Mariinka checkpoints when the border guards prevented violations of the order of bringing goods across the division line. The list of seized goods includes a chainsaw, a walk-behind tractor and a power generator.
As we reported earlier, over 800 Russian citizens failed to enter Ukraine after the martial law ended on December 26, according to the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine. Spokesperson of the border service Oleg Slobodyan stated that 160 Russians were refused to enter Ukraine during the New Year holidays.
‘When aliens and stateless persons, as well as the citizens of the Russian Federation, cross the border, the border guards constantly separate risk groups and take additional measures to prevent people to enter Ukraine as they might be involved in provocative or illegal actions on the territory of our state,’ they say.
As we reported, the border guards did not allow 1,650 citizens of Russia to enter Ukraine during the action of martial law in ten regions from November 26 till December 26.
