Statement on the current situation on the Transnistrian segment of Moldovan-Ukrainian border

        The European Union Border Assistance Mission has been monitoring the activities at the Moldova-Ukraine border, including the Transnistrian segment, in accordance with its mandate. In relation to the current situation, the Ukrainian border authorities have intensified security measures, which led to refusal of entry for an increased number of foreigners who did not meet entry requirements; Russian citizens were among them. Nevertheless, based upon their regular observations, the Mission experts have not witnessed any relevant disruption of movement of people and cargo across the Transnistrian segment.
