Commercial ships coming from the Crimea will not be allowed to enter into port of Turkey. The measure has been approved by the Ministry of Transport in the country. On October 9, Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan visited Kyiv and said Ankara supported the territorial integrity of Ukraine. His comment is related to the annexation of the peninsula in 2014.

In addition, a day later, Turkey also announced restrictions on imports of agricultural products from Russia, which is a reaction to the ban on Turkish tomato imports in the country.

Russia has asked for clarifications on the announced restrictions on imports. Ankara has already provided the regulation, which is being analyzed by the Russian authorities. The measures concern wheat, unrefined sunflower oil, maize, peas and etc.

In recent months, relations between Russia and Turkey have improved significantly. As a result of the warming, Gazprom began to build a new gas pipeline along the Black Sea bottom to the Turkish coast. Ankara ordered Moscow’s C-400 missile system, risking problems in NATO.

Both sides also signed a number of economic agreements among themselves, including the construction of a nuclear power plant – Akkuy NPP.
