Russian Post suspends ground delivery to 23 countries

Source: Meduza

Russian Post has stopped ground delivery to 23 countries, reports RBC, citing the company’s website.

The affected countries are Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, the United Kingdom, Hungary, Germany, Denmark, Ireland, Spain, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, France, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Switzerland, and Sweden.

Next to each of these countries on the website are the words: “Delivery by air. Ground delivery temporarily suspended.”

RBC also included Estonia in the list, but at the time of publishing, the Russian Post website states that ground delivery to Estonia is possible.

A source told RBC that the restrictions stem from the fact that Russian Post’s German subsidiary did not have time to renew contracts for car and rail transport.

Russian Post’s press service stated that there were “bureaucratic difficulties” in arranging ground cross-border transportation in the direction of Europe, but that the difficulties are temporary and ground delivery will resume within the next two months.

After Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine, official postal exchange between Russia and Poland, Finland, Ukraine, Australia, and New Zealand was suspended.
