Conditions have been reported differently in other areas, however. On Tuesday, Russia's Federal Agency for Development of State Border Facilities (Rosgranitsa) reported Ukraine unilaterally shutting down three vehicle and one railway border crossings along with four other checkpoints in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions of eastern Ukraine, neighboring Rostov.

On Friday, the FSB Border Guard Service said Ukraine had barred Russians from entering the country through the Shebekino-Pletnevka checkpoint in Russia’s southwestern Belgorod region.
