IRU unimpressed with Russian TIR action

[ December 5, 2013   //   ]

The International Road Transport Union (IRU) has accused Russian Customs of spreading confusion over TIR. While the Customs service had officially announced a stay of execution until 1 July 2014, immediately afterwards it “once again disregarded the TIR Convention by unilaterally issuing, on 2 December 2013, a list of offices where TIR Carnets are still not accepted – representing 95% of all Russian Customs offices.” IRU said “this negative action reconfirms the FCS RF’s blatant disregard for the TIR Convention and international law, despite recent high-level pressure from the Russian Government confirming that Russia will continue to fully abide by the TIR Convention.”
