BRUSSELS, December 19. /TASS/. The European Union has imposed a ban on the supplies of more than 200 items, from cigarette lighters to yachts, ships, floating structures, planes, spacecraft and spare parts for them to Crimea. The full list is contained in the addendum to the list of new trading restrictions for Crimea, agreed on Thursday and published by the EU’s Official Journal.
The goods are grouped into eight classes, but as a matter of fact the supplies of any industrial products to Crimea are prohibited.
Also, the European Union bans its companies from providing tourist services in Crimea, and the cruise ships belonging to the European companies or flying the EU flag, from visiting seven ports — Sevastopol, Kerch, Yalta, Feodosiya, Yevpatoria, Chernomorsk and Kamysh-Burun.
The European companies are not allowed to provide know-how and equipment for transport, telecommunications, energy, hydrocarbons and minerals exploration and development, as well as assistance and mediatory services in creating related infrastructures.
