EU bans the imports of goods from the Crimea without Ukrainian certification

The EU summit in Brussels on June 27 supported imposition of the ban on imports of commodities from the Crimea to the European Union. There are two exceptions to the prohibition. First, goods that have been granted a certificate of origin by the Ukrainian government are not subject to the prohibition. Second, a grandfathering clause allows the continued performance of contracts related to such goods until 26 September 2014 – but only, where such contracts were concluded before 25 June 2014.

The statement stressed that taking into account the decision not to recognise the illegal annexation of Crimea and Sevastopol to Russia, "the European Council welcomes the work undertaken by the Commission to give effect to this policy and the decision to prohibit the import of goods from Crimea and Sevastopol which do not have a Ukrainian certificate”.
