Subject The article deals with the issues of sanctions' impact on the transport and logistics activities in Russia and considers the restrictive measures. Objectives The article aims to analyze the transport and logistics activities in the Russian Federation in terms of the introduced restrictive measures. Results We have studied the commercial volumes of cargo transportation by type of transport in January–September 2015 and January–September 2014, percentage compared to the same period of the previous year, and the direct impact of imports under the restrictive measures. In diagram form, we present the Russian Federation imports indicators of foodstuffs and agricultural raw materials in January–September 2015 and January–September 2014, and the commodity structure of the RF imports from the CIS countries. The Russian Federation has the need for new contracts. We discuss the cases of the imposition of sanctions in Belarus and how therefore the traffic flows redistribution has changed. Based on statistics, we analyze the impact of restrictions on international transport by road. Conclusions The Russian producers are facing the need to increase productivity. This should lead to increased competition in the market of transport services and, consequently, improve the quality of transport. In the long term, the agrarian industry and other branches of the Russian domestic market will develop in a more brisk manner. Domestic fruits and vegetables, and other goods will cover the shortage of imported ones. Russian transport companies will be delivering them to the trade network. It is obvious that there is a growing demand, including for transport services, instead of predicted decline of the economy.
