Personnel manning the checkpoints will leave. There will only be observers who will be responsible for making sure that the decree on restricting supplies of goods to Crimea issued by the Ukrainian government is properly enforced.

"The reason the blockade is getting reformatted is because the decree took effect this very day," Refat Chubarov told dernek representatives and members of the Executive Committee of the World Congress of Crimean Tatars who arrived at the checkpoints in Chongar.  

It was reported earlier that the World Congress of Crimean Tatars officially launched today. The Congress’s participants arrived in the town of Genichesk for their 3rd meeting and visited the checkpoints in Chongar.
