The Ministry of Economic Development and Trade of Ukraine reports on stopping the transit of Ukrainian goods through Russian territory, according to a statement published on the Ministry’s website.
“The ban imposed by the Russian Federation is non-transparent, unjustified, and discriminatory. Thus, Russia has violated its commitments undertaken in the framework of the World Trade Organization and the Agreement on free trade zone of October 18, 2011,’ reads the statement.
Hence, the Ukrainian side asks carriers to take into account these circumstances, and is currently developing the ‘alternative’ routes for transit.
In the event of difficulties with Russian customs, the carriers are asked to contact the Ministry of Economic Development and Trade of Ukraine.
