Ukraine Bans Russian Trucks

Ukraine has decided to ban Russian trucks entering the country in response to Moscow blocking the transit of Ukrainian trucks through its territory, RT reported. Russia has accused Kiev of failing to deal with Ukrainian nationalists who are stopping Russian trucks from travelling through the western and northern regions of Ukraine from the European Union. More than 500 trucks are prevented from entering the country, as blockade leaders want Kiev to halt the transit of Russian goods. In a tit-for-tat response, Russia has banned Ukrainian trucks from entering the country. “The measures will be in place until a settlement of the illegal blocking of Russian vehicles in Ukrainian territory by Ukraine,” Russia’s transport ministry said in a statement. The ministry added that what is happening is a flagrant violation of the agreement between the governments of Russia and Ukraine on international transport. Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseny Yatsenyuk said the transit of Russian trucks through Ukraine has been stopped until Moscow explains the changes concerning the transit of Ukrainian trucks through Russia.
