It is noted these figures remain at the level of last year. At the same time, the administrative border toward mainland Ukraine has been crossed 1% more than in the opposite direction.

Compared to 2015, the number of citizens crossing the administrative border in both directions decreased by 16%, which is about 400,000 people less.

As UNIAN reported earlier, the Prosecutor's Office of Ukraine's Autonomous Republic of Crimea said over 18,800 residents in Russian-occupied Crimea had been illegally conscripted into the Russian army from 2015 to 2019.
