Only Ukrainian citizens can cross the administrative border with Crimea. Interfax-Ukraine news agency reported this with the reference to the State Border Guard of Ukraine.

'As of the administrative border, one will be only able to cross it with Ukrainian documents', said Andriy Demchenko, the head of the press service of the authority.  

According to him, all foreign citizens who previously entered the annexed peninsula can freely leave it. 

'In case foreigners return from the temporarily occupied territory, they will be allowed to pass, granted that they entered [Crimea] legally', Demchenko said.

As is known, Russia annexed Crimea in late February-early March 2014; Ukraine and governments of the civilized countries claimed the peninsula a temporarily occupied territory. The Western governments imposed a number of economic sanctions. The Russian Federation claims that the annexation was a mere 'restoration of historical justice'.
