Russia is rebuilding logistics and increasing export traffic in alternative directions, against the background of the closure of freight traffic with Finland, APA reports citing the Russian press.
According to the information provided by the Russian Railways, transportation of products to Finland has been suspended since March 26, as the country's VR Group has warned RDY about the impossibility of accepting freight trains due to sanctions. The trains are still being returned from Finland to Russia.
Negotiations are underway with China Railways on the supply of additional freight trains to expand export opportunities.
Russian Railways also noted an increase in exports in alternative directions. Thus, since March 16, the average daily traffic to Azerbaijan and transit through Azerbaijan has increased by 20.9%, through the Mongolian-Naushki border checkpoint by 11.1%, from Kazakhstan to China by 2.2 times, while via Belarus and Belarus by about 2.2 times.
