On January 1, 2016, the Russian government imposed limits on the transit of Ukrainian goods via its territory; the restrictions concern only deliveries by truck from Ukraine to Kazakhstan, which should be conducted via a certain checkpoint on the Russian-Belarusian border.  

Ukraine protests against such decision, claiming that Russia completely ceased the entire transit of Ukrainian goods through its territory.
