Export from unacknowledged Crimea to the European Union decreases 251 times



In April-May of 2014 the volume of goods supplied from Crimea to EU countries constituted $113,4 thousand, meanwhile in 2013 this number constituted about $171 million, so the volume of export last year is on average 251 times bigger. This was stated to newspaper “Week mirror. Ukraine” by scientific consultant with Razumkov Center Volodymyr Sidenko citing Crimea Statistics data.

According to the expert, under such conditions the only market for Crimean companies is the Russian one.

As Sidenko emphasized, local business, for example, are de facto unable to supply their products to EU countries today, unless they have certification in Ukraine.

“Crimea is unacknowledged by the global community as part of Russian territory. And this means that it de facto has no possibility of using international legislative norms to protect the interests of subjects of economical activity on the territory of the peninsula,” said he.

We are a small independent journalist team on a shoestring budget, have no political or state affiliation, and depend on our readers to keep going (using the chanсe - a big thank you to our generous supporters, we couldn't make it without you.)  If you like what you see, please help keep us online with a donation

    Such will be the way under putin’s ‘eurasian union’. He and his kgb cronies will dictate every aspect of every captive unfortunate enough to be trapped living in his ‘eurasian union’.

    Pro Russian Crimeans got a nightmare-coming-true instead of a dream-coming-true.

    And that’s why you have to think things through before you make a decision.
    But don’t worry Mother Russia will provide for them.
    Putin on the other hand….
