Ukraine’s State Border Service has published an updated list of automobile border crossings as of March 30, 2020.
The number of border crossings has reduced by one as of March 30, compared with the list of border crossings as of March 23, with the Rossoshany-Bricheni automobile crossing on the Ukrainian-Moldovan border in the Chernivtsi region being closed, the CFTS portal reports.
In addition, according to information from the State Border Service, the Ukrainian-Moldavian border is currently closed to pedestrians.
However, three border crossings on the Ukrainian-Polish border remain open to pedestrians: the Yahodyn, Rava-Ruska, and Krakovets.
