The Ukrainian state inspectorate for ground transport safety has denied reports made by Crimean media that Ukraine has allowed the resumption of road traffic to Crimea.
This comes amid reports made by Crimea agencies which quoted traffic operator of Simferopol central bus station as saying that "the traffic resumed, buses have no troubles with border crossing".
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 Dec 27.
A day earlier, authorities canceled bus services and stopped letting passenger cars pass through the Armyansk and Perekop checkpoints on the border with Crimea.
Ukrainian military spokesman Andriy Lysenko announced Dec 27 that the transport suspension was a temporary measure to prevent "subversive groups disguised as local residents" from entering the Ukraine mainland.
