This was announced by Minister of Infrastructure of Ukraine Vladyslav Kryklii.
“On March of 2017, there were talks about the importance of building the Chongar checkpoint on the administrative border with Crimea. Together with the Ukrzaliznytsia, the project was implemented in record time - in just 2 months and has been operating since November last year. Today, together with colleagues, we have signed a Memorandum of Cooperation. At Chongar border checkpoint, opportunities will be provided for Ukrainians to ensure a convenient and fast receiving of the necessary services. Russia, as an aggressor country, captures by force, but we are returning people with care. Because we are a state for the people," Vladyslav Kryklii said.
During the trip, Oleksii Reznikov and Vladyslav Kryklii inspected the regime and service zones of the Chongar checkpoint.
A visit to Skadovsk Sea Commercial Port is also planned as part of the working trip.
