Vehicles can drive across the Ukrainian-Polish border at the following checkpoints: Krakovets-Korczowa, Rava-Ruska-Hrebenne, and Yahodyn-Dorohusk.

Radio Liberty reports with reference to the Mostyska border detachment's press secretary that it is impossible to cross the border on foot at Krakovets-Korczowa and Rava-Ruska-Hrebenne starting from May 16. Citizens of Ukraine on the Polish side were collected by special buses, which will be canceled.

Border crossing requires observance of quarantine rules, namely wearing a face mask and social distancing (at least 1.5 meters) between people who move on foot.
