President addressed the Government with a proposal to consider the termination of freight transport communication with Crimea

The Ukrainian President sent a letter to the Prime Minister with an offer to immediately establish the working group on the analysis of the issue on termination of freight transport communication and trade turnover with temporarily occupied Crimea (in both directions), as well as the elaboration of respective draft decision.

The Head of State also offers to ensure temporarily termination of road and railroad freight transport communication with Crimea in both directions before the adoption of respective decision.

The President emphasizes that a priority for the Ukrainian government today is to determine a model of future relations with temporarily occupied Crimea. “Confrontation between public activists and occupational authorities of Crimea has been escalated recently. 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,” the Head of State said in his letter.
