Businessmen suspected of violating sanctions against Russia detained in Estonia - mass media
Businessmen suspected of violating European Union (EU) sanctions against terrorist country Russia have been detained in Estonia. The businessmen and a commercial association continued economic activities with a Russian commercial association after the restrictions were imposed.
The activity was conducted both directly from the Russian Federation and through the mediation of a company from a non-EU country. About it writes Delfi.
The prosecutor's office has initiated criminal proceedings against the businessmen. They may face up to 5 years in prison.
Recall, earlier Estonia introduced a ban on the entry of cars with Russian registration into its territory. In the afternoon on September 13, the first car with Russian license plates has already been turned around at the border of Russia and this country.
The car was driven by a driver with dual citizenship of Lithuania and Russia. The entry of Russians on the car was prohibited from 10 am.
"As the driver said, at the entrance to the checkpoint "Narva-1" Estonian customs officers informed him about the ban on the importation of this category of cars, after which he was directed back to the territory of Russia", - stated in the message of the customs of the Russian Federation.
As OBOZREVATEL wrote earlier, the EU banned residents of the terrorist country Russia to import cars, smartphones, jewelry, laptops and other things. Russians are now not allowed to import even shampoos to the territory of the bloc.
