Post offices of 6 countries announced a postal blockade of Russia and Belarus
According to the Ukrainian post office — Ukrposhta, post offices of Poland, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, and Australia have already submitted the relevant documents to the Universal Postal Union to stop the delivery of items to Russia and Belarus.
“The postal blockade of the aggressor countries was also joined by the Latvian Post, which in March stopped postal money transfers to Russia and Belarus,” said in the statement.
Director general of Ukrposhta Ihor Smelianskyi noted that the postal blockade is the result of the work of Ukrainian diplomats, volunteers, the Ukrainian diaspora, and Ukrposhta. Ukrposhta, as the designated operator of a member country of the Universal Postal Union, has repeatedly appealed to colleagues from post offices of other countries with a call to break connections with the Russian Federation.
