The actual Crimean management of Rosselkhoznadzor deprived the Crimeans of animal products supplied from the territory of Ukraine. According to the agency’s press service, trucks with meat and fish have been stopped at the administrative border with Crimea 118 times over the past week.

“Bags and suitcases of citizens contained 65 kg of sausages, 92 kg of lard, 68 kg of pork, 45 kg of poultry meat, 280 eggs, 28 kg of honey, as well as fish, seafood, different types of meat products, canned meat, live crayfish and other goods,” the press-service reports.

Rosselkhoznadzor officials search hand luggage and vehicles of the citizens, traveling to Crimea via checkpoints Armenian, Dzhankoy and Perekop and seize meat, fish and sausages as illegal goods.

Since September 27, 2014, Ukraine has introduced a customs declaration of goods going to and from Crimea under the law on free economic zone (FEZ). The transported goods are correspondingly declared. If the goods are delivered to the territory of Crimea, they are declared according to the export regime of the free economic zone.  If the goods are brought from the territory of Crimea, the declaration on import to the territory of Ukraine is drafted.

September 2014, the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko has signed the law "On the tax and customs control in free economic zone (FEZ) of Crimea and the peculiarities of economic activity in the temporarily occupied territory of Ukraine."
