Ukrainian trucks are unable to cross the Russian border
Because of the introduction of the new procedure of customs control entire queueof freight cars on the Ukrainian-Russian border appeared. Ukrainian and Belarusian, Moldovan, Turkish and Kazakh trucks were detained at the checkpoint. Drivers of trucks did not know about law innovation. Recently introduced new procedure requires financial collateral delivery at border control. Instead of financial guarantees, it’s possible to give guarantees the financial obligations for drivers.
Before that innovation, the procedure of customs control at the border was demonstrating warranty books of international road transport. These books ensured transportation of cargo containers sealed in a simplified mode, and also served as a guarantee of payment of customs duties.
As a result, Ukrainian and other truckers crossing the Kharkov, Lugansk, Donetsk region borders were forced to «make an unscheduled halt». Currently Ukrainian Customs Service develops information brochures that will be issued to truckers for successful crossing the Russian border.
