Since Thursday, 24 April 2014, Pravy Sector activists have been busy setting up checkpoints on the roads between Ukraine and Transnistria. They prevent Russian citizens from passing through while the Ukrainian police remain passively to one side.

The Minister of Foreign Affairs of Transnistria, Nina Shtanski, recalled that never before did her country have anything to fear from Ukraine. Hence, she expressed concern to see a two-thirds drop in the entries and exits between the two countries.
