As noted, even Turkish ferries that arrived from Sevastopol can not moor in the port of Zonguldak.

Coming from the ports of the occupied peninsula is cited as the key reason behind the refusal. At the same time, ships that arrive from other Russian regions may freely enter the ports. Representatives of logistics companies in Turkey are concerned about such actions of the authorities, because they are forced to return all the cargo back to exporters.

One company has already lost more than $150 million due to the ban.
