Ukraine Halts Trade With Crimea

Ukraine’s government has decided to temporarily stop freight transport communication with Russia-annexed Crimean peninsula, the government’s press service said, World Bulletin reported. During an extraordinary meeting, Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk instructed the cabinet to prepare a draft government order on a specific list of goods and services that can be provided to the Crimea. “In order for the list of products to meet the interests of Ukraine, I propose to involve the Crimean Tatar Mejlis so we take into account the interests of our brotherly Crimean Tatar people,” said Yatsenyuk. Earlier, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko addressed the government with a proposal to consider the termination of freight transport communication with Crimea, according to a statement released Monday. Poroshenko also offered to “ensure temporarily termination of road and railroad freight transport communication with Crimea in both directions before the adoption of respective decision. A series of criminal cases against the initiators of trade blockade of Crimea have been opened. The initiators demand full termination of trade relations with the occupied territory.”
