Occupant authorities of the annexed Crimea fully shut down the traffic across the administrative border with Ukraine. The country’s State Border Guard reported this on Wednesday.

‘Reasons for such actions unknown; the Russian border guards do not let the people out of peninsula,’ the message said.

Due to this situation and the respective circumstances that took place at Chongar, Kalanchak and Chaplynka, the Ukrainian authority asked the citizens to refrain from traveling to Crimea.

Russia's FSB Border Guard reported that the traffic shutdown took place for ‘technical reasons’. Interfax, the Russian news agency, added that as of Wednesday morning, the traffic was restored.
