Vehicles with Russian license plates that were issued in occupied Crimea and Sevastopol are denied entry to the territory of Ukraine.

This is stated in the official response of the State Fiscal Service of Ukraine to the relevant request filed by Censor.NET.

"Based on the provisions of the law, the vehicles with Russian license plates issued on the territory of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol are barred from crossing the administrative border between Ukraine and Crimea and pass through customs control," the document reads.

As noted, state agencies and local authorities in the occupied territories are acting solely within the powers stipulated by the Ukrainian Constitution and Laws.
