Kherson customs officers are convinced that the ban on import of Ukrainian food products into Crimea is a part of an overall plan of the Russian Federation for the destabilization of the situation and the escalation of tensions in the region. In addition, the coercion of Ukrainian carriers to obtain Russian customs clearances is a part of the activities to legitimize the occupation.
