Rail freight transit transport between Russia and Ukraine has decreased by a factor of five since 2012,

Rail freight transit transport between Russia and Ukraine has decreased by a factor of five since 2012, Evghen Kravtsov, chairman of Ukrzaliznytsia, tells Radio NV on Tuesday. This is costly as international freight rates are generally four times higher than domestic ones, he added. Because of Russia’s restrictions on rail freight with Ukraine, Ukraine has also lost transit cargo from Central Asia. The loss of transit fees, he said, “is a very significant and serious economic issue for the smooth operation of Ukrzaliznytsia. What is not received by transit, needs to be received on the domestic market For this reason, it is necessary to increase tariffs in the domestic market.”
