which were appropriated, when the Peninsula was part of Ukraine. These cars often don’t come back, because, according to the border guards, many Crimeans are selling these cars to buyers from independent.

In addition, many cross the border and vehicles with new, Russian numbers for the Republic of Crimea and Sevastopol, which until the Ukrainian border was simply not reached: planted passengers in the neutral zone and come back, because in Ukraine with “82” and “92” dangerous to go: these numbers are not recognized and are threatening to take away such machines.
