Transit of Russian coal to Europe via Belarus in 2014 fell by more than 20%

​Belarus states the fall of transit of the Russian cargo to Europe, including coal by more than 20%, oil products by 15%, the Minister of Transport and Communications of Belarus, A. Sivak, said.

“Coal shipment via Belarus annually made up 24-27 mln tons. One should not say this is connected with the mutual sanctions”, he said.
