The Ukrainian government has announced modifications to its border regime resolution, outlining the specifics for the presence of citizens within border zones. This move follows the enforcement of a new Ukrainian law in March 2023, which revised the previously established government resolution from July 27, 1998.
New Border Regulations
Under the new border regime, free entry, presence, residence, and movement of individuals are strictly prohibited, along with the performance of tasks not related to the defense or protection of the state border within the plots of land permanently assigned to the military units of the State Border Service. These plots are specifically allocated for the construction, organization, and upkeep of engineering, technical, and fortification structures, fences, border signs, border clearings, and communications.

The resolution also includes the procedure for issuing permits for entry, presence, residence, work activities, and passage into the border strip. The State Border Service of Ukraine is the designated authority for granting these permissions.
Further Details Pending
Additional details on the implementation of these modifications will be disclosed following the government's finalization of the amendments highlighted in the current resolution.
