Estonia has imposed a ban on the entry of cars with Russian registration into its territory. Latvia and Lithuania the day before closed the possibility of entry.
According to Estonian Interior Minister Lauri Läänemetsa, the country "came to the conclusion, having consulted with the authorities of Latvia and Lithuania, that the restrictions are most effective when jointly imposed sanctions." About it writes "Present time".
Latvia and Lithuania on the eve also closed the possibility of entry by cars with Russian license plates, but Finland and Poland, also having a common border with Russia, on the restrictions have not yet reported.
Recall, the European Union (EU) banned residents of the terrorist country Russia to import cars, smartphones, jewelry, laptops and other things. Russians are now not allowed to import to the territory of the bloc even shampoos.
The European Commission has confirmed the interpretation of the sanctions legislation against Russia, according to which entry into EU countries by passenger cars registered in Russia is regarded as prohibited imports.
It does not matter whether the vehicle is used for private or commercial purposes, as long as it is registered in Russia, it is subject to sanctions and will be treated as prohibited imports. It is also prohibited to import cosmetics, suitcases, laptops, leather and fur products, semi-precious and precious stones, toilet paper, shampoos, toothpastes.
As OBOZREVATEL wrote earlier, the Russians in social networks threw a tantrum about this. In turn, the Russian Foreign Ministry called racism this decision of the European Commission.
