Russian Federation – Observation of mail delivery standards

11 May, 2020

JSC Russian Post asks us to inform other Union member countries and their designated operators that, owing to the measures taken by the Russian government to limit the spread of COVID-19, air connections between the Russian Federation and other countries have been significantly reduced. Russian Post is currently using road and rail routes to forward its international outbound mail to the countries of the European Union and other countries to which such means of transport are affordable, whereas sea or air routes are being used to deliver mail to countries to which it is not possible to deliver mail by road or rail. EMS items are being forwarded as priority mail by air transport. Given the situation, delays are to be expected in the forwarding of Russian Post's outbound mail items.

Russian Post thanks Union member countries and their designated operators for their understanding, and will keep them updated on any changes in its operations.
