Crimea has reportedly resumed the road traffic with Ukraine, Crimea's KrymMedia agency quoted the traffic operator of Simferopol central bus station as saying.

"Buses have no troubles with border crossing. There is no restriction", - traffic operator said.

Ukraine has suspended all transport services to Crimea, citing a deteriorating security situation. All passenger and cargo train services to the peninsula were halted on December 27.

A day earlier, authorities had canceled bus services and stopped letting passenger cars pass through the Armyansk and Perekop checkpoints on the border with Crimea.

Ukraine had already banned sea and air traffic with the territory, which is still serviced by Russian airlines.
