Trains between Ukraine and Crimea are being suspended because of unspecified security concerns.

Ukraine’s state rail company Ukrzaliznytsia said cargo services have already stopped. Passenger services will gradually cease between now and Monday.

“In order to ensure the safety of passengers … [the railway] will cut the route of trains to Crimea off at Novooleksiyvka and Kherson,” it said in a statement, referring to two towns on the Ukrainian mainland near Crimea.

Crimea is controlled by Moscow but its only land link is with Ukraine.
