Direct bus transportation between annexed Crimea and occupied territories in the East of Ukraine (ORDA) are illegal.
This was stated by Deputy Minister of infrastructure, Yuriy Lavrenyuk during the meeting of the Board of Public service of Ukraine on safety on transport at the end of the first half of 2016, reports «UKRINFORM».
«Officially, no automobile, bus, route messages between annexed Crimea and temporarily occupied territories of Donetsk and Luhansk regions no. All that in the online ads – it’s all illegal carriers, which are stakeholders,» said Lavrenyuk.
He noted that in fact such transportation is «collusion involved passengers and the driver.
As told head of the State service of Ukraine on safety on transport Mikhail Nanak, difficulties with the detention of such «carriers» arise from the fact that the drivers are the owners of the private vehicle.
«The problem is that the Crimea go small vans up to 8 seats, which we do not license and it is not our responsibility. They call under the guise of a private vehicle from the Ukraine in the annexed territory of the Crimea», – he said.
Nanak also noted that carriers that have the appropriate license and the route, only to go to the checkpoints, and passengers walk pass on the annexed territory, where further get the Crimean vehicles.
Deputy Minister of transport told about the existence of a «model» outline for the implementation of the illegal bus messages.
«All passengers who took the so-called ticket, which is illegal, conspire. After all, before leaving the driver clearly instructs: if you want to get to a place where you’re going, when you stop, you must say that you are friends, acquaintances, who go about their business. And when you stop them at the border, and they say,» explained Lavrenyuk.
The minifrastruktura planned road check on the illegal disembarkation/embarkation passengers. Ukrtranslizing, in turn, intends to strengthen the responsibility for illegal carrying, in particular, to the confiscation of the vehicle. Already made the appropriate legislative proposals.
