"They do not take in ferries from Crimea, this has lasted for two weeks already," he said.

According to him, Ankara does not specify the reasons for such decision. Gvozdilov stressed that the suspension of the communication made the supply of products and goods from Turkey to the occupied peninsula impossible.

Several ferries sailed between Crimea and Turkey. The communication resumed in Oct. 2016, then the Russian ferry Varyag made its first run from Sevastopol to Zonguldak.
