Customs authorities in Russia have recently tightened restrictions on import shipments to Russia, in particular on dutiable shipments sent to private individuals. These shipments are currently under extraordinary scrutiny in an effort to improve accuracy of the accompanying shipping documentation.
These additional requirements lead to an unprecedented number of customs holds and delays in delivery. UPS has therefore temporarily suspended the acceptance of dutiable shipments sent to private individuals in Russia until further notice. Please accept our apologies. More info is given by UPS.
I am sorry guys UPS is still not able to deliver to the majority of Russian destinations. We can only ship via UPS and
therefor have no other possibilities to fulfill Russian orders. If you have any questions regarding alternative destinations etc. Please contact us at email@example.com
Also if you guys want alternate shipping options, head to http://feedback.shapeways.com and start an item for it, get others to vote for it, so that it will be on the Shapeways priority list.I learned a long time ago the wisest thing I can do is be on my own side, be an advocate for myself and others like me. -Maya Angelou
