Given the current situation in Ukraine are there problems with crossing of the Ukrainian borders? In general and for westerners in particular.
Post is related to a rapidly changing event.

- This question does not appear to be about traveling within the scope defined in the help center.
I am Ukrainian, just took a weekend trip to Norway (flying from/to KBP) and there were no issues whatsoever at border in either direction.
Well, that escalated quickly...
According to news due to tension with Russia border with them is "nearly locked down". According to reports:
- Russians coming are getting denied entry in droves
- Ukrainians going are getting asked for things like proof of funds for stay and medical insurance, which isn't typical procedure.
Two days ago, demonstrants have blocked border crossings to Poland. Some were totally blocked (for westerners and non-westerners likewise) and others were only blocked for trucks. That was a very temporary and isolated action. In the meantime all the crossings are clear again.
