Through September, there were 2 million crossings of the administrative border between Ukraine and Russia-controlled Crimea this year, reports Ukraine’s Border Service. Without offering numbers, the Service says that crossings are declining, presumably as Ukrainians alter their vacation patterns. This year’s statistics show a net exit of 5,000 people from Crimea. Before annexation in 2014, Crimea had a population of 2 million. Due to sanctions, Crimea’s lone commercial airport, in Simferopol, only has flights to Russia.
