Mail package to Crimea

I searched, but could not find anything recent.

I want to mail my girlfriend in Crimea a Christmas present. The address there has changed since the region was switched from Ukrainian control to Russian.

With the new address, FedEx says it cannot deliver, but UPS and USPS both will give me quotes using the Russian postal code my girlfriend gave me.... but I feel worried since I have not mailed anything to this region since before the conflict.

Has anyone here mailed anything to Crimea recently? I worry that I will mail this gift and it will just disappear.

hi, I'm from Ukraine, so i know the situation... there is a very little chance that your parcel will reach her, post just doesn't work in Crimea :no:

My good friend has his lady in Crimea as well. Any mail from USA to Crimea is not making it, as well as Crimea to USA. However, his lady has been able to send mail via Russian post to my fiancee in Moscow. Then my lady can send to USA via Russian post or UPS with no issues.

I know it is confusing, but in short. I would not send. Your parcel will just get "lost". Sorry...

Right before the reported annexation back in February I mailed a gift to my girlfriend who also lives in Crimea. It took about 4-5 weeks (mailed priority), but she did eventually receive it. I'm not sure if my package arrived because it was in transit before the annexation though. Sorry I can't be more help. The situation sucks :(

Hi, I decided I should try to send it. So I put some cheap stuffs inside of the large package. It was jan 13, so USPS inspected it in Chicago and they change dates and it is still in Chicago. It didn't move at all. So I actually sent two packages in one day. One package is in Moscow now, and my brother should get it in Krasnodar. And another package "moved" to Crimea. So mute question was if my parents will not get this cheap stuffs, I'll send everything only to my brothers address. Of course, both packages have huge insurance and return mail after delivery. My coworker sent package to Yalta and they got through a week!!! She used postal zone.

So I'll continue to share with you, today is Jan26, 2016 =))) We'll look if we can trust to USPS and how long it'll take???
