Russian military checkpoint

On 27 February 2014 during the 2014 Crimean crisis Crimean Berkut occupied the checkpoint near Chonhar and neighbouring territory.[1] After the disputed accession of Crimea to Russia the area became a de facto border patrolled by Berkut and pro-Russian militiamen.[2][3] By 9 December 2014 this Russian border checkpoint was fully abandoned.[3]
