"Everything is based on rumors for now. Cars are still crossing the border, bus and train [ticket] sales are continuing, trains are crossing the border," Tsurkin said.

The minister advised to wait until Saturday to get an update on the situation with the border.

Earlier on Friday, Ukraine's state railway operator "Ukrzaliznytsia" announced the suspension of railway service with Crimea starting December 27. The announcement said that trains previously bound for Simferopol and Sevastopol will now terminate at the border with the peninsula.

Ukraine's land transportation security inspectorate also announced the suspension of bus services to Crimea as of December 26. A statement on its website said that the termination was intended to "eliminate threats to the lives and health of passengers."
