The initiators of the blockade believe that the Ukrainian companies should stop trade relations with Crimea as the territory of the peninsula was occupied by the Russian Federation. According to the blockade organizers, they will deny trucks' access to the Crimea until Russia fulfills their demands including the release of political prisoners, the cessation of pressure on independent media, unimpeded access for international observers in the territory of the peninsula, the cessation of repressions against the Crimean Tatars.

The occupation authorities of Crimea believe that the residents of the peninsula will not be affected by the consequences of the "food blockade".
