Freight Traffic Between Russia and Poland Faces Suspension

Freight traffic between Russia and Poland may be suspended because Poland refuses to follow new Russian regulations, Russia’s Transport Ministry announced on Friday, the Interfax news agency reported.

The new regulations, according to the ministry, are aimed at tighter control of Russian permits issued for motor transportation of goods from other countries, but Polish officials insist the regulations imply a higher level of state control over freight traffic.

The ministry points out that Poland hasn’t offered any solution to the problem other than demanding that the federal law be changed, Interfax reported.

In 2014 a law was passed in Russia introducing stricter registration rules for international freight traffic.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
