 Poroshenko proposes government to terminate freight transport communication with occupied Crimea

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko sent a letter to the prime minister with an offer to immediately create a working group to analyze the issue on termination of freight transport communication and trade turnover with temporarily occupied Crimea (in both directions), as well as to elaborate a respective draft decision.

In his letter dated Nov. 4. the head of state also offers to ensure temporarily termination of road and railroad freight transport communication with Crimea in both directions before the adoption of the respective decision, Censor.NET reports citing the press service of the president.

The president noted that one of the government's current priorities is to determine a model of further relations with temporarily occupied Crimea.

"Confrontation between public activists and occupational authorities of Crimea has escalated recently. A series of criminal cases against the initiators of the trade blockade of Crimea have been opened. The initiators demand full termination of trade relations with the occupied territory," the head of state wrote, arguing the need to halt freight transport communication with the peninsula.
