A record decline in passenger traffic has been register in both directions on the administrative border with the occupied Crimea, according to the website of the State Border Service of Ukraine.
"In general, for the six months of 2016, the flow of people coming through the administrative border with Crimea fell by almost 8% compared to the same period of 2015. A number of vehicles also fell by 32%," the report says.
In addition, during the two weeks of July 2016, the number of people going to Crimea reportedly fell by 38% compared with the same period last year.
The overall analysis shows a tendency of decreasing the number of people traveling from the mainland Ukraine to the peninsula.
The State Border Service of Ukraine also reminded that the actions of the occupants in the territory of Crimea repeatedly caused queues. The control services on the adjacent side let the vehicles pass so slowly that it results in their accumulation. Thus, the occupants are likely to seek to create the illusion of a large flow of people going to the peninsula.
