The armored patrol cars will be placed at the checkpoints besides the police officers with the assault rifles.

The police also denied information that people without passports are not allowed to Odesa.

“The law enforcers stop only suspicious cars, trying not to stop the main flow. The gossips that people without passports cannot come to the city is not true. It is fake,” the message said.
