You're reading: Ukraine’s Employers Federation: Russia’s customs service halts all Ukrainian imports
on social media

“On midnight on August 14, all Ukrainian importers without exception
were added to the first forty enterprises which were entered into to the
risk profile of the risk management system of the Federal Customs
Service this July. At the same time, the steps to prevent risk were
tightened further. As a matter of fact, this means a full halt of
Ukrainian exports indefinitely, for weeks or even months,” the report

The federation said that the Russian customs is continuously checking
Ukrainian cargo, unloading it and loading it back into the trucks.

“All this increases the periods of idleness of cars and other
vehicles, and as a result, increases the cost of goods, or disrupts
their supply, or leads to its spoilage, and undermines the position of
Ukrainian producers on the Russian market. Meanwhile, Russia is a vital
market for many Ukrainian enterprises,” the federation said.
