Blockade of Crimea? Ukraine suspends cargo traffic to and from peninsula

The Ukrainian government has suspended the movement of cargo between Crimea and Ukraine, citing an initiative put forward by PM Arseny Yatsenyuk. The suspension will be active until a list of goods allowed to be delivered to the peninsula is compiled.

The decision was preceded by a request from Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko on Monday which wanted to look into the possibility of a temporary “termination of road and railroad freight transport communication with Crimea in both directions”.
