The Government of Russia by its regulation dated on April 30, 2014 (No. 739-r) approved a list of measures on improvement of transport situation in seaports.
The measures are aimed at facilitation of formal procedures for port calls, exits and stay of vessels in the seaports of the Russian Federation, in order to create favourable conditions for export and import of goods in seaports.
