Buses regularly go to the occupied Crimea from the territory of the Luhansk region, which is not controlled by Ukraine, according to the recent report of the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission:
“The SMM visited two border areas not under government control. At the border crossing point in Izvaryne (52km south-east of Luhansk), during one hour and fifteen minutes, the SMM observed about 20 civilian cars (most with Ukrainian licence plates), 40 pedestrians and two buses – one with Ukrainian licence plates and one with “LPR” plates - leave Ukraine.”
The passenger of one of the buses told about the ticket price to the occupied Crimea:
“The SMM also observed a bus with Ukrainian licence plates, seven civilian vehicles, and 28 pedestrians enter Ukraine. A male passenger in one of the buses, marked “Luhansk – Yalta”, told the SMM that the service ran several days per week, that the trip usually lasted around 24 hours and costed 2.000 RUB.”
Earlier QHA reported that in the Donetsk region armed militants with patches of skulls and bones obstructed the work of the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission under the pretext of "drills" and shouted at the observers in a language they could not identify.
