Ukraine has almost completely lost Russian transit

Due to politicaleconomic miscalculations of the Ukrainian authorities, the country in 2014 lost the Russian transit, while losing a lot of money due to lost profits. This was stated by the former Deputy Minister of Infrastructure of Ukraine Oleksandr Kava on the air of the television channel "Pershy Kozatsky".

Now all transit freight transport from China and Russia to Europe bypasses the territory of Ukraine both on ordinary roads and by rail. The country is losing billions of dollars. At the same time, it is almost impossible to return transit flows to the Ukrainian territory, even not affected by the hostilities - the transport goes through Belarus. When driving around the war zone in Donbass from the north, it makes no sense for drivers to go down to the south, and they move along Belarusian roads

- said the expert.

Taking this into account, the road workers of Belarus are reconstructing the M10 highway, which runs along the Ukrainian border. Kazakhstan has already built its section of the road from Western China to Europe, Russia is actively involved in road construction - the Bryansk-Gomel-Brest road will be of the most importance in this case.

Transportation of a container by truck from China to Europe takes 10 days, by rail - about 14 days, by sea - from 28 to 35 days. Thus, most of the cargo will be transported by road. And if such a scenario is implemented, these cargo flows will go past Ukraine

- Alexander Kava noted with regret.

    Ukraine has almost completely lost Russian transit

    Willingly ... or involuntarily, but Ukraine will not participate in the "policeman" ..., the servile mission, into which Russia climbed with such servility and zeal ... - got into the service of China ...
    - Oh, what a joy for Russia !!! -Now Chinese consumer goods will float across the territory of Russia !!! - And what a joy that now Russia will be united with this single impulse with ... with Belarus and with ... with Kazakhstan ... - Hurray !!! Now we will all stand together on our hind legs and serve; and seek each one individually ... - the best location and favor from China ... - There will be elbowing, pushing and fussing for the place of the "first servant" (and this place must still be earned) ... - so now you have to .. .- run a race ...
    - Yes, our grandfathers and great-grandfathers would have known that they defended the independence of Russia ... - how despicable and disgusting their pathetic descendants will look ... - Descendants who consider it an honor and great luck ... servilely serve China ... - Russia has such a "great joy" today ... - And Ukraine on this score ... - God had mercy ... she was lucky ... - Ukraine remains on the sidelines ... - But Russia did not pass the exam for lice. ..

      Ukraine was, in 1991, a transit monopoly of everything (!) From East to West. For this, if you are not aware, Ukraine received billions of dollars a year, only for the fact that someone in transit through Ukraine delivered something to the West.
      But in the same 1991, patented Ukrainians-Russophobes came to power in Ukraine, with the ardent approval of the Ukrainian people, who at each new election elected more and more “frostbitten” Russophobes to power.
      It's been 30 years of hooting Russophobia in Ukraine ...
      Now Ukraine is a "plague barrack", which everyone is trying to bypass, fly around and generally stay away.
      The freebie is over, now the ukropresidents are kneeling and begging the IMF for a measly one or two billion. And in debt. And they do not always give these crumbs.

    What normal person wants to move off the road onto a country road? Even putting politics aside, when were the roads repaired?

    HE is not KAWA, but KIVA, but not the essence. He forgot to clarify that the colonial administration of Ukraine followed the instructions of the mother country ...

    Again twenty-five. They came up with it themselves, they themselves were indignant, they themselves condemned. wink
    First, an agreement on the transit of Russian gas has been signed, the volumes of supplies and the amount of the contract are known.
    Second, transit from China to Europe is now being established, bypassing the Russian Federation and passing through Ukraine.
