Many thirsty passengers hoping to get a last drink or bite, or to buy duty-free gifts before boarding their planes at Kyiv’s main airport Boryspil, have  left empty-handed since Sept. 1. That’s when authorities first started shutting down duty free stores and eateries at the main terminals B and D.

For unexplained reasons, duty-free stores and restaurants at Boryspil’s terminal F were left operating as usual. But in the days that followed, authorities cited customs violations as a reason to shut down most duty-free stores and food venues at the nation’s other main airports, in Donetsk, Odesa, Lviv and Simferopol, as well as Kyiv’s Zhulyany.

The controversial shutdowns were explained by Kyiv Oblast prosecutors, who admitted to uncovering customs violations, but denied shutting down the venues themselves.
