Under the decree No.319, the restrictions concern the goods coming from Ukraine through Russia to Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan. The Russian side also prohibited transit of all goods that fall under Russian embargo imposed in early 2016.

Ukraine’s Infrastructure Ministry warns these restrictions could temporarily cause full stop of transit of goods from Ukraine through Russia – not only to the mentioned countries, but also third countries as well. The Ministry called the restrictive measures imposed by Russia ‘economically and judicially groundless’, as they would ‘expectedly lead to artificial worsening of Ukraine’s trade with third countries, specifically, Central Asia’.
