EU Bars Entry of Russian and Belarusian Vehicles

Russia’s Federal Customs Service announced that the EU has barred the entry of cars registered in Russia and Belarus.

As part of sanctions against Russia for the Invasion of Ukraine, private cars registered in Russia and Belarus cannot enter EU territory in addition to commerchial vehicles transporting pharmaceuticals, food, agricultural products, energy, fertilizers, and nonferrous metals.

“Now vehicles of international transportation with Russian and Belarusian registration plates will not be able to move goods across the territory of the EU countries,” said Russian Customs.

Aside from road transportation, the EU has also banned Russian-flagged vessels to EU ports except for those carrying medical, food, energy, and those used for humanitarian purposes.
