MOSCOW, February 15. /TASS/. Russia is imposing a total freeze on the movement of all cargo vehicles registered in Ukraine through its territory, the ministry of transport has said. The suspension is effective as of today.
"In connection with the further boycott of Russian cargo transport vehicles in the territory of Ukraine the movement of Ukrainian cargo vehicles carrying out transit transportation of cargoes is fully suspended in Russian territory starting from 12:00 Moscow time of February 16, 2016," the news release runs.
The delivery of cargoes to the territory of Kazakhstan will continue under the presidential decree of January 1, 2016, but by transport companies of other states, the ministry said.
According to earlier reports, the Russian transport watchdog Rostransnadzor had already detained 324 Ukrainian trucks.
"The retaliatory measures will stay effective until the settlement of the situation involving the Ukrainian side’s blockade of Russian cargo transport vehicles," the Transport Ministry said.
In the meantime, the movement of Russian trucks through Ukraine is still hindered. Entry into Ukraine from the European countries is closed. Russian trucks in Ukrainian territory have been subject to blockade since February 11.
