State border between Crimea and Ukraine starts functioning on April 25, the acting head of Crimea’s border service Andrei Panov announced.

“At present, Crimea’s border service has 27 checkpoints. It has opened another three automobile checkpoints and two more railway checkpoints in Armyansk and Dzhankoi," Panov noted.

“We are not imposing any restrictions. We hope that our Ukrainian colleagues will act accordingly,” Panov went on to say.

In turn, Crimea’s acting Federal Migration Service chief Pyotr Yarosh noted border crossing rules and the issuance of migration cards would be part of the agenda at a meeting to be chaired by Vice-Premier Olga Kovitidi.
