Confident import of goods is carried out from the EU in the Crimea as a Russian region, said the Chairman of the Association of freight carriers and forwarders of Crimea Anatoly Curcin.

«If previous years it was just try, then today all confidently driven all established. And carry goods from EU countries, representatives of small business. You can even provide samples of documents that are filled in EU countries for the supply of goods to the Crimea», — told RIA Novosti the Curcin.

According to him, mainly in the Crimea imported various components, including the equipment for generating plants, furniture and other.

«Foreigners write in the documents «Russia. Simferopol,» put their seals, and the product quietly went to the Crimea. This is the main point. Today it has become the norm to import goods from the EU countries directly. This is the practice of working successfully», — said Churkin.

According to him, Crimean and European entrepreneurs successfully cooperate, and nobody’s talking about any sanctions.

«There are sanctions against the Republic of the Crimea, but no sanctions Simferopol, Armyansk, Yalta, and no sanctions against all citizens and legal entities in the Crimea. So writing the documents «Russia. Simferopol» does not break anything. Everything is made legally and directly. No need to carry goods in Krasnodar, where its customs clearance, as it was before, and only then send to the Crimea. Technical restrictions in the framework of the paperwork and passing no boundaries,» — said Churkin.
