The Cabinet of Ministers wants to ban any transport links with Russia for 50 years

Must read

At the end of last year, Finland closed all checkpoints on the border with Russia due to illegal immigrants, and Ukraine plans to ban any transport links with the aggressor country for half a century.

As European Pravda reports, the Cabinet of Ministers will submit proposals for the application of sectoral special economic sanctions for a period of 50 years to the National Security and Defense Council. They will concern road, rail, air and shipping communications.

Proposals will be developed in accordance with the Law on Sanctions.

The document will provide:


  • ban on direct air traffic with Ukraine, as well as the use of Ukrainian airspace and airspace over the open sea, for all types of direct and transit flights of aircraft owned (operated) by legal entities – residents of the Russian Federation,

  • a ban on the entry into Ukraine of vehicles (buses, trucks) registered in Russia,

  • a ban on the import into the customs territory of Ukraine under all customs regimes of railway rolling stock (cars of all types, locomotives) for persons associated with the aggressor state, as well as rolling stock registered with the railways of the Russian Federation.

There is also a ban on navigation in the internal waters of Ukraine and entry into the seaports of Ukraine:

  • ships flying the flag of the Russian Federation;

  • vessels, the owner/shipowner of which are citizens of Russia, legal entities registered on the territory of the Russian Federation, legal entities, the ultimate beneficial owners, members or participants (shareholders) of which are citizens of Russia, individuals and legal entities against whom sanctions have been applied;

  • ships that called at ports located in the temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine;

  • vessels under the supervision of the Russian Maritime Register of Shipping’s institution and the Russian River Register institution.

Let us recall that last year a number of EU countries introduced restrictions affecting cars with Russian registration. In particular, in Lithuania, owners of cars with Russian license plates will be given a “transition period” until March 11, 2024 – by this date they will have to take their vehicles out of the country. Otherwise, the cars may be confiscated and transferred to Ukraine.
