NICE, January 24. /TASS/. The Russian Railroads Company (RZD) has not introduced limitations for transportation of coal to Ukraine, the company’s head Vladimir Yakunin told reporters on Saturday.
Earlier, Ukrainian media, referring to the country’s Ministry of Energy and Coal Industry, reported “coal supplies from Russia to Ukraine were terminated on January 23.”
While answering a question whether RZD had limited transportation of coal Yakunin said: “Sure, not. We have not introduced any limitations.”.
Cooperation between railroads of Russia and Ukraine should be free of political influence, Vladimir Yakunin told.
“I believe, we should avoid political statements and should care about safety and interests of our passengers and clients,” he said.
Several days earlier, Ukraine’s railroad company said it would stop working with the Russian railroad company if the latter cooperates with militia of the self-proclaimed republics in Ukraine’s war-torn south-east.
