Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko suggested to urgently establish a working group for the comprehensive analysis of possible suspension of freight transportation to Crimea, Joinfo.ua reports.
“The confrontation between social activists and the occupation authorities of the Crimea has aggravated lately. Number of criminal cases was initiated against the activists of the trade embargo of Crimea. The initiators of the blockade of Crimean peninsula, which began on 20 September this year, are demanding the complete cessation of trading relations with the occupied territory,”- said the President in the letter to the Cabinet.
So, the Cabinet of the Ministers supported the President’s position and decided to suspend the goods supply to Crimea.
