EU sanctions against the Crimean seaports are "dry shot" – Ministry of Transport
The sanctions imposed by the European Union will not seriously affect any port of the Crimea, or work of the Kerch ferry. To date the ports are mainly focused on shipment of goods of the Russian Federation, declared Maxim Sokolov, Minister of Transport of the Russian Federation, on July 29.
There are no direct relationships of transport operators with the state enterprise Kerch ferry, and thus, the reporting sanctions are considered as “dry shot”, said M.Sokolov.
As a reminder, the EU imposed sanctions against SE Sevastopol Sea Trade Port, SE Kerch Sea Merchant Port and SE Kerch Ferry Line.
