Since February 2022, the customs has blocked 500 containers of products for export to the Russian Federation on suspicion of violating EU sanctions.

To unlock containers, interested companies must provide documents confirming that they do not violate the sanctions, the article says.

The detained containers may contain luxury goods, medical equipment, electronics, food, as well as products that can be used for military purposes. In total, the customs service identified 30 violation cases of export sanctions.
