Kalanchak and Chaplynka, the entry-exit border checkpoints on the administrative border with Crimea resume work after a brief halt. They were temporarily closed due to the malfunction of communications. This is mentioned in Ukraine's State Border Guard's message on Facebook.

All checkpoints are now working as scheduled.

The malfunction and its consequences were observed on January 26, as the vehicles were halted on both sides. 

Earlier, the State Border Guard reported that eight seamen from Russia have been banned from entering the Ukrainian territory because of visiting the occupied Crimea illegally. On January 23, Odesa border guard unit checked the incoming vessel that came from Spain. There were 13 Russian nationals aboard. It appeared that last year, eight of them illegally visited the annexed Crimea. The State Border Guard decided to ban them from visiting Ukraine for three consecutive years. The detainees were brought to responsibility for violating the border crossing procedure; they are due to pay fine of USD 489.67.
