Ukrainian ministry accuses DHL, Adidas, Puma of operating in Crimea
Ukraine's Ministry for Temporarily Occupied Territories and Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) has said that Germany's DHL, Adidas and Puma violate the legal regime for temporarily occupied territory of Crimea.
"The operation of the above-mentioned foreign companies (DHL Express, Adidas AG, Puma SE) in Crimea contradicts the policy of non-recognition provided in the UN General Assembly resolution on territorial integrity of Ukraine No. 68/262 dated March 27, 2014, and violates the established European Union restrictive measures (sanctions) against the Russian Federation," the ministry said on December 6.
The ministry said that these companies placed information on their website, according to which the address of their stores in Crimea have the Russian Federation in the section "country."
According to the report, the ministry appealed to the relevant authorities in order to take measures and protect independence, state sovereignty, security and territorial integrity and inviolability of the state borders and national interests of Ukraine.
