Russian customs authority extends illegal TIR restrictions
The Federal Customs Service of the Russian Federation (FCS RF) has further extended the scope of its illegal restrictions on TIR guarantees to the Central Customs region. This latest decision directly defies the UN TIR executive board’s and TIR administrative committee’s conclusions, according to the International Road Union (IRU).
In addition to the previously affected North Caucasian, Southern, Far Eastern, Siberian, Ural and Volga Customs regions, as well as customs at Sheremetyevo, Domodedovo and Vnukovo airports, these unilateral restrictions may notably impact the customs offices in Bryansk, Belgorod, Vladimir, Voronezh, Ivanovo, Kaluga, Kursk, Lipetsk, Moscow, Moscow Regional, Smolensk, Tver, Tula, Central Operativnaya and Yaroslavl.
