Russian "transit war" halts 80,000 vehicle traffic from Ukraine to Asia

The Ukrainian transit automobile trucking companies have lost about 80,000 trips a year because of the ban imposed by the Russian Federation on transport of our goods through its territory.

The press service of the Association of International Automobile Carriers of Ukraine (AMAP) told Ukrinform.

"If you take into account all the transit traffic through the territory of the Russian Federation to the countries of Central Asia - these are Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, and Kazakhstan with access to China - it totaled about 80,000 trips per one year conducted by the members of the Association," said the press service.

Also, the Association said that despite the ban on the Ukrainian transit through the territory of the Russian Federation, the trucking companies still attempt to cross the Ukrainian-Russian border, but they have not succeeded to do that.

Experts also point out that because of an unexpected ban on transit it is difficult to quickly find an alternative route for transportation.
