Five seaport ports have received the status of international

Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev signed a decree confirming the international status of all Russian sea ports. The head of the Russian Government announced this at a meeting with the deputy prime ministers, the press service of the government of Primorsky Krai reports.

Dmitry Medvedev explained that this decision is due to the fact that some documents that previously confirmed the opening of seaports for international traffic are obsolete, and in some cases even were lost.

“This inconsistency led to various legal delays. Now, both border and customs procedures for arriving foreign ships, I hope, will be much easier, no additional permits and approvals are required. And, of course, the ports themselves can work in a more energetic manner, in full force, ”said Dmitry Medvedev.

In accordance with the order of the Government of the Russian Federation published on Monday on the website of the Cabinet of Ministers, the seaport was declared open for entry by foreign ships 51.

From the seaside ports, the ports include Vladivostok, Vostochny, Zarubino, Nakhodka and Poset.

Russian Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich said that Russian ports for the last 25 years existed de jure in a non-conclusively defined status, although most of them were de facto open for foreign seagoing ships.

“Nevertheless, it was not possible to find documents for a number of ports, even in the archives. For a number of ports, documents were classified, classified as “secret”, also issued in Soviet times - these are Vladivostok, Arkhangelsk, Vyborg, although de facto they functioned as international seaports, ”he said.

The document, according to Arkady Dvorkovich, fully legalizes and gives a clear legal status to all Russian ports - they are fully open for foreign sea vessels to enter, all obstacles, including legal ones, for the full operation of these ports have been removed.
