On November 9, the government of Moldova approved of several changes to the ways of importing oil products through the Eastern border of the Republic of Moldova, in other words through the separatist region of Transnistria.
Thus, the Customs Office will allow until December 31, the imports of oil products coming through Novosavitskaya-Cuciurgan checkpoint and will document them at Bender 2 office. According to the press release of the government, the measure was requested by the economic agents that imported oil and lubricants through the separatist region.
Previously, Ukraine blocked the imports of oil products on railways to Transnistria.
The decision follows a discussion of authorities from Kyiv with the working groups from Chichinau and Tiraspol on railway transportation and customs problems. (Moldova.org/Business World Magazine)
