After the start of the full-scale invasion of Ukraine,

sanctions were introduced against

Russia , which, in particular, relate to the ban on the import of goods from Europe.

Despite this, the Russians organized many schemes to bypass them.

The Federal Statistical Office of Germany reported that Russia found a way to circumvent sanctions and use German goods through the involvement of third countries.   

Channel 24 writes about it.

Thus, after the introduction of sanctions, the export of goods from Germany to Kazakhstan, Armenia and Georgia doubled.

Other countries also showed incredible growth in imports of German goods:

  • Kyrgyzstan +994%;

  • Tajikistan +150%;

  • Belarus +77%.

The department immediately informed other authorities about this situation, which will now work on finding ways to make it impossible to circumvent sanctions in such a simple way. 

We will remind you that

the 11th package of sanctions against Russia, which the European Union plans to introduce, will be aimed at blocking ways of circumventing the already introduced restrictions.
