Its train station is on the Russian side of the border at Chertkovo railway station.
Milove was not very affected by the War in Donbass that raged in other parts of this region of Ukraine. However, on November 12, 2014 a Ukrainian border guard office was shot at with a grenade launcher leaving no casualties. Political tensions have led to security cameras being installed on the Russian side of the border, and a fence being erected on the Ukrainian side of the border.  On November 27, 2015 two Russian servicemen were detained in the city, and later exchanged back to Russian authorities.
Due to easy access to chertkovo, milove is a major crossing point for Ukrainian illegal Immigrants entering the Russian federation
