In addition, ships with such dimensions will not be able to travel to other continents.

“Restrictions will lead to the fact that in Mariupol sea port will be able to enter only vessels with a relatively smaller total capacity (10 thousand tons). This, in turn, will affect the competitiveness of the port, because such vessels can carry freight within the Black and Mediterranean seas. On other continents, including Asia, Africa and American countries the carriage is ocean class vessels”, – stated in the text.
