This is a Chonhar border crossing station. It is located in Kherson region (mainland Ukraine), and it connects mainland Ukraine with Crimea. After the annexation, people would have to pass through it and then get their passports checked to get into the peninsula. You could cross by car or on foot, so people would wait in line, get their passport checked first by Ukrainians, then by Russians, and enter Crimea.
Hey there! Before you go, please take a moment to support Inkstick Media.
As the first and only foreign policy outlet written explicitly by and for a broader, younger, and more diverse audience, Inkstick offers new views on the big, emergent questions and debates that typically are discussed behind closed doors in Washington DC, in elite diplomatic circles, and the halls of think tanks. Quite simply: Inkstick is foreign policy for the rest of us.
