The border guard service ensured the work with the local government bodies of Ukraine on the involvement of the vehicles for transfer,” the message said.
The border guards provided the transfer of the Ukrainians through the checkpoints Yahodyn (Volyn region), Rava-Ruska and Krakovets (Lviv region), Uzhhorod, Tysa, Vilok (Zakarpattia).
The spokesperson of the State Border Guard Service stated that the passenger traffic at the state border has significantly reduced as 112 Ukraine reported. Generally, the passenger traffic reduced to 105,000 on both sides.

As starting from March 16, the entrance to Ukraine for foreigners was restricted; 83 foreigners were not allowed to enter our country. On the first day, almost 400 people were not allowed to enter it,” Demchenko said.
The trucks with goods move through the border but there are some delays.
