Russians are advised to get permission to travel to the Crimea at the Ukrainian authorities

Get permission from the authorities in Ukraine to enter the Crimea recommended Russian citizens Russian Consumer Rights Protection Society (OZPP). This is stated in the relevant memo, posted on the website of the organization.

NCO in his memo, referring to the rules of international law, calls Crimea and Sevastopol “occupied territories.” “Law of Ukraine provides the entry and exit from the occupied territory, and for its violation, tourists can incur criminal liability, up to the prison term,” - said in the text.

Tourists OZPP recommends the Ukrainian legislation, and enter only with permission of the Crimea Ukrainian border guards through the Kherson region. In addition, travelers are advised not to use the services of marine carriers that do not have permission from the Kiev authorities on entry into the ports of the Crimea. In the society stressed that tourists have the right to demand compensation from tour operators in the event that they were not warned of the possible risks.

In OZPP also advised Russians to abandon the acquisition of real estate on the peninsula, as the Ministry of Justice of Ukraine blocked the authorities of Crimea and Sevastopol access to the State Register, which made registration of the related transactions. “Without access to it is virtually impossible to confirm the rights of the owner of real estate, check the legal purity of the object and see its history. This creates an opportunity for fraud related to the sale of a variety of multiple entities,” - warns the memo.

In addition, the Company voluntarily arrogated to themselves the status of a “foreign agent” and not included in the relevant register of the Ministry of Justice, does not recommend the purchase of goods and services in the Crimea, as is claimed, likely buying a counterfeit product, which is not covered by the warranty.

Crimea and Sevastopol became part of Russia in March 2014. This decision was supported by a referendum about 96 percent of the inhabitants of the peninsula, took part in the vote. Ukraine considers the referendum illegal and calls Crimea and Sevastopol “occupied territories.”
