London has eased anti-Russian sanctions over Crimea, allowing its ships to enter ports of Crimea in emergencies.
The British government has eased Crimean sanctions against Russia, allowing its ships to enter the ports of the occupied peninsula. With this norm, the British sanctions are brought in line with the European ones after Brexit. This is stated in a relevant document published on the website of the British government.
Thus, London allowed its vessels to pay for port services directly to the enterprise Crimean seaports. In particular, this applies to the Kerch Fishing Port, Yalta, and Yevpatoria Commercial Ports, including for pilotage services and the use of port terminals.
The license took effect on January 1. It is assumed that British ships will be able to call at Crimean ports in emergencies. We would like to point out that as of today, the same exception applies to ships from EU member states.
We would remind you that on 1 January Britain began its first year outside the EU.
Earlier it was reported that the UK was among the countries which would participate in the format of the Crimean platform.
