Can the customs in Russia cause a delay in my Russia Post delivery?

When parcels are being sent over via Russian Post shipping either nationally or internationally, they tend to be slow as it is referred to as a global courier network with mail operators working in multiple countries. Despite the statuses of the parcels being delivered, when sent via Russian Post, the delivery time takes longer. One of the major reasons is in the customs process, i.e. cargos sit indefinitely at the Russian customs that change over the passage of time. Hence, the recent changes and limitation of imported goods per habitant made within the Russian customs practice contribute to the difficult situations.

Custom officials have declared that the exports and imports are normally drugs and weapons that demand tight control. This results in higher workloads and thereby delays in deliveries.
