Crimea does not let Ukrainian printed media in
Ukrposhta (Ukrainian Post Service) was forced to terminate accepting and delivering Ukrainian periodicals and printed media to the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and to the city of Sevastopol because the customs service of the Russian Federation refused to let periodicals and printed media from the mainland Ukraine to the territory of the Crimean peninsula. This was reported on the Ukrainian Post Service’s website.
According to Ukrposhta, several days ago one of its cars delivering periodicals to Simferopol from Kyiv was stopped at the entrance to the Crimean peninsula by the officials of the Customs Service of the Russian Federation and was sent back due to prohibition to deliver Ukrainian printed media to Crimea.
Due to impossibility to deliver printed media to Crimea, Ukrposhta cancels its post route Kyiv-Simferopol and returns to senders printed media it accepted for delivery earlier.
Ukrposhta reminds that after Crimea was annexed Crimean Post Service refused to accept post from the mainland Ukraine.
