MOSCOW, February 1. /TASS/. The ban on motor freight traffic between Poland and Russia effective from today will not affect the range and prices of goods in large Russian shops, Executive Director of the National Retail Chain Stores Association Valentin Voskresensky told TASS on Monday.
"Stop of heavy haulers’ traffic between the two nation will not affect the price and the range of goods in Russian stores because there are stocks in warehouses and supplies are made from other countries," Voskresensky said. Major Russian retailers believe the decision of Polish authorities not to coordinate permits for transportation companies in 2016 with Russian colleagues is "a political move," he added.
"Poland is a transit [country] on the way to Europe for us. Russian retailers believe the Polish authorities made a decision not to agree upon the 2016 year permit for transport companies against the background of a complex political situation," the expert said.
"An attempt is thereby made to isolate us from trade routes to Europe. Nevertheless, let me say once again the decision is not adversely affecting the range and prices in our stores so far," Voskresensky said.
Furthermore, motor freight traffic between Turkey and Russia is also temporarily suspended from February 1 in view of expired Turkish permits issued in 2015.
