KIEV, March 09, 22:38 /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine’s State Border Service will increase control over people’s movements on trains bound for Kherson, Vadim, Novoalekseyevka and Melitopol and on automobile roads between Chaplinka, Kalanchak and Salkovo following a government order signed by parliament-appointed Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk.
On March 4, Ukraine’s State Border Service launched an operation called “Border” to prevent provocateurs from entering Ukraine.
Ukrainian border guards turned away 513 Russian nationals who wanted to cross into Ukraine on Saturday, March 8.
Ukrainian authorities are also trying to bar entrance to journalists who are coming to Ukraine. For example, the customs officers at Donetsk airport refused to allow an Itar-Tass photo correspondent to go through the customs on Sunday. They took away his papers and equipment.
