Türkiye abruptly stopped the transit of sanctioned goods to Russia this month as the European Union and the US pressure allies to support measures imposed over the Russia's war in Ukraine, APA reports citing Bloomberg.

The government ordered a halt to transit of such goods via Türkiye from March 1 in compliance with sanctions, said a senior Turkish official, speaking on condition of anonymity.

“The cargo clearance system in Türkiye simply stopped working,” said Ekaterina Lazutkina, co-owner of Vendor Cargo, a Moscow-based door-to-door shipping, customs clearance and general freight company that works through Türkiye.

The customs system now blocks goods destined for Russia, she said.
