By 2018, 3 permanent automobile checkpoints (PAC) will have been built on the Crimean part of the Russia–Ukraine border, the head of the Federal Agency for State Border Infrastructure Development, Konstantin Busygin, has told RBC.
According to him, PAC construction sites will be located in Perekop, Armyansk and Djankoy. After the reunification of Crimea with Russia, temporary projects were initiated after two months. This year, more PAC design work is planned. In 2016, the construction will start and in 2018 the work is to be completed, but the Federal Agency for State Border Infrastructure Development is ready to complete the construction by 2017. The planned capacity of each checkpoint is 2,000 automobiles a day. 3 railway checkpoints – in Djankoy, Armyansk and Simferopol – are also being prepared for operation, as are 2 aviation checkpoints, in Belbek and Simferopol. Seacoast checkpoints operate in Yalta, Feodosiya, Kerch, Evpatoriya and Sevastopol.
