Turkey stopped ferry communication with the Crimea in less than six months after its resumption. This was reported by the director of the company-operator of the ferry line "Crimean marine agency" Stanislav Gvozdilov, reports RIA Novosti.

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

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

Several ferries sailed between Crimea and Turkey. The communication resumed in October 2016, then the Russian ferry Varyag made its first run from Sevastopol to Zonguldak. In December, Russia announced that Turkey agreed to accept cruise ships that entered the ports of the Crimea, despite the EU sanctions limiting the entry of vessels into the occupied Crimean harbors.
