Ukrainian sea ports in the Sea of Azov have lost around 232,7 million dollars of income because of the Russian aggression since 2014. This was reported by the head of Ukrainian Sea Ports Authority Rayvis Vetskahans in the interview for Interfax-Ukraine agency.

“For the time of Russian aggression, Azov ports lost almost half of the cargo and the number of ship entries decreased more than by two. In total, since 2014, according to our estimates, ports have lost income for around 232,7 million dollars. And this does not include losses and additional expenditures of exporters, connected to delays and re-orientation of cargo traffic,” he said.

According to Rayvis Vetskahans, Ukrainian ports in Azov demand complex support on state and international levels.
