Update Volume 2018/26 Update Ukrainian Ports: Russian Crew Members
Due to current tensions between Ukraine and Russia the Club has received various queries from Members, in particular in relation to port calls in the Ukraine with Russian crew members.
The Ukrainian Government has banned Russian men between the age of 16 and 60 from traveling into the Ukraine. Our local correspondent informs us that this decision will have no effect on vessels with Russian crew members on board to call Ukrainian ports provided that these crew members remain on board.
Members are advised to take all necessary precautions when calling Ukrainian ports and request their agents for the latest information. Of course, the Club will be able to provide any further assistance which is desired.
