MOSCOW, June 23. /TASS/. Russia has completed the equipment of the Russian-Ukrainian border in Crimea with checkpoints. "All checkpoints in the Crimean Federal District are operating at full capacity," head of the Federal Agency for the Development of State Border Infrastructure (Rosgranitsa) Konstantin Busygin said on Tuesday.
Currently there are 12 checkpoints in the Crimean Federal District - 3 vehicle checkpoints, 3 train checkpoints (Armyansk, Dzhankoy, Simferopol), 5 marine checkpoints and one air checkpoint.
"The latest addition was made on May 15, and currently all the checkpoints are operating at full capacity," Busygin said.
The opening of three more vehicle checkpoints on the border between Crimea and Ukraine is planned before December 2018, Konstantin Busygin told TASS a while ago. This is 18 months ahead of schedule within the framework of the program of the socio-economic development of Crimea and Sevastopol until 2020.
The head of Rosgranitssa recalled that Russian President Vladimir Putin had asked to create checkpoints in Crimea a year ago.
During the referendum held on March 16, 2014, residents of the Black Sea peninsula overwhelmingly voted for Crimea’s incorporation into Russia. On March 19, 2014, Crimea and the city of Sevastopol became part of Russia.
