Goods that are imported into occupied Crimea from Ukraine are later sent through the Kerch crossing to the territory of the Russian Federation, states Majlis Deputy Chairman Nariman Dzhelyalov.
"The big trucks come to Crimea and deliver the goods. The majority of Ukrainian and other products that come the Crimea via Ukraine, further are leaded to Russia through Kerch,” he stated. Dzhelyalov was quick to note that minimum number of Ukrainian goods stays in Crimea.
Despite Putin’s decree ordering destruction of sanction-busting imports, Crimean market continues to sell imported fruit and vegetables. People from all over the world signed a petition urging the Russian government not to destroy the foods but give to the poor instead. Russia has already steamrolled more than 320 tons of illegally imported food, including fruit, vegetables, poultry, diary products, beef, pork, fish and seafood.
