In the Primorsky Territory, a checkpoint on the border with China will be closed due to the celebration of the New Year. The government of the city of Hunchun notified the government of the Primorsky Territory of the need to close the Kraskino border checkpoint for 18 days.

According to the press service of the Primorye government, the Kraskino-Khunchun border checkpoint will be closed from January 28 to February 14. The Chinese authorities explained the decision by the fact that they want to provide the employees of the checkpoint with the opportunity to celebrate the traditional New Year with their families. Eastern style New Year will come on February 12th. However, in the PRC, employees of the checkpoint, working on a rotational basis in a pandemic, are required to go through a two-week quarantine after the shift.

The work of the checkpoint will be restored to its previous level on February 15. International automobile checkpoints "Pogranichny" and "Poltavka" did not work on January 1, 2, 3 and 7... The Kraskino point did not work on the same dates; the day off at this point was also January 10th.

Problems on the border with the PRC began this spring. Then at the checkpoints hundreds of trucks were accumulating... The congestion was due to the fact that China оbordered border crossing due to the unfavorable situation with the coronavirus in Russia. To solve the problem, the authorities of Primorye introduced a regime of electronic passes for heavy trucks.
