Yesterday, the First Deputy Head of the illegitimate Council of Ministers in Crimea, Rustam Temirgaliyev, announced that the Crimean ports at Feodosiya and Yevpatoria would cease to exist. His justification: due to their cost effectiveness.

According to the group Information Resistance, the closure of these ports is due primarily to the fact that after the annexation of Crimea, the state-owned “Feodosiya Sea Trade Port” and “Yevpatoria Sea Trade Port,” which were classified as international and were some of the more budget-creating enterprises in their regions, stopped the transshipment of petroleum products, rolled metal, clay, sand, and consumer goods. Most of these loads came from Turkey.

At present, within the framework of the Feodosia sea trading port, only one sea ferry operates, the “Poseidon Express,” which delivers containers of food and industrial products from the Russian port of “Novorossiysk” to the [Crimean] peninsula.

Due to the absence of trade turnover, port employees are currently being paid from funds saved in 2013, which will last a maximum of one month.

Over 1,000 people will be left without work due to closure of the ports. The shutdown of ports will seriously affect the revenues to local budgets.

    Russian economics at it’s best. For all those “idiots” who were so vocal supporting Russia’s annexation, you now reap what you sowed.
