PostEurop suspended the membership of Russian Post and Belpochta. Russian Post says it won’t affect customers

One of the founders of the Universal Postal Union, the PostEurop association, due to the war in Ukraine, suspended the membership of Russia and Belarus in the organization until at least October 2022. This was reported on the PostEurop website.

The decision on this was made during the board of directors of the association on June 23, but it became known only on July 2. The membership of Russian Post and Belpochta was suspended "in accordance with internal rules": "considering the war in Ukraine and as a result of a request from a large number of PostEurop members."

“PostEurop members will decide at the General Assembly on October 5, 2022 on the possible renewal of the suspension of the two aforementioned PostEurop members,” the post reads.

The press service of the Russian Post told Interfax that the suspension of its membership in the organization would not affect customers in any way: PostEurop, according to a representative of the Russian post, is only engaged in the exchange of experience and does not affect correspondence between countries.

Russian Post has been part of PostEurop since 1994, Belpochta since 2007.
