Trading restrictions concerning Ukraine 

Trading restrictions imposed by Ukraine

  • Crimean ports closed to international shipping
    On 15 July 2014 the Ukrainian Ministry of Infrastructure Decree No. 255 dated 16 June 2014 “On Closure of Sea Ports” was published and immediately entered into force. Hence the Crimean ports Evpatoria, Kerch, Sevastopol, Theodosia and Yalta are now closed to international shipping. 

    The practical implications of breaching the Ukrainian ban on calling Crimean ports is unclear, but could result in detention and/or fines, as well as criminal charges against master, crew and owners.
