Crimean Ports Under Sanctions Looking for Way Out to Iran

Crimea’s ports, which are not operating at full capacity due to the fear of ship-owners incurring fines from Ukraine and western sanctions, are considering the possibility of working with Iran as well as Syria, Crimean Deputy Prime Minister Georgy Muradov announced.
“Our ports are barely loaded and so we are working on a Syrian and Iranian direction, so that ships carrying numerous loads will be able to travel to these countries, which do not impose constraints,” Muradov said at a press conference in Simferopol on Tuesday.
In his opinion, Russia “certainly needs to sort out the international register which placed a ban on the Crimean ports”.
