59 people have left the Russian-annexed Crimea, crossed the border and headed to the mainland Ukraine, complaining about the poisoning symptoms. Such reports followed after the emission of a toxic substance at Crimean Titan factory in Armyansk, northern Crimea. Ivan Shevtsov, the head of the press service of Kherson border unit said this in his commentary for the press.

‘Currently, Kalanchak and Chaplynka checkpoints work in the limited mode, only letting people in. Chongar checkpoint works as scheduled', Shevtsov said. The State Border Guard of Ukraine did not observe any contamination in the air over the past 48 hours.
