Crimea, News, Russia

The German logistics company DHL continues to operate through so-called “partner service points” in Kerch, Sevastopol and Simferopol (occupied Crimea).

DHL offers its services openly on its official website.

The site states that residents of occupied Crimea can use the services of the company if they present a Russian passport or a foreign passport (if the recipient or sender is a citizen of another country).

However, the Ukrainian version of DHL’s website does not show any service points on the territory of occupied Crimea.

DHL is the only logistics company that operates in occupied Crimea. Other major players, such as EMS, USPS and FedEx, do not have any offices or affiliate service points on the peninsula.

The EU Council recently extended sanctions against occupied Crimea and Sevastopol until June 23, 2018.

Sanctions include a ban on import of goods from Crimea and Sevastopol to the EU, investments in Crimea or Sevastopol, tourist services in Crimea and Sevastopol, in particular, European cruise liners are not allowed to enter Crimean ports, and export of certain goods and technologies to Crimea, especially in transport, telecommunications and energy sectors.

    This is all so silly :-) Who is going to prevent me taking a flight to Moscow, and then buy separate ticket to Simferopol ? :-)
    There is an USA embargo on Cuba, but anyone can get on Jetblue JFK-Havana, go to some all inclusive resort, while stating to US authorities that you visit Cuba not as a tourist but with some “humanitarian mission”. :-)

    How can a place be “occupied” when only 1-2% were against annexation (so 99/98% pro) in the first place?

    OH RIGHT, I forgot. This is Euromaidan press
