Russia has put a halt on the transit of coal from Kazakhstan to Ukraine. Andriy Gerus, the chairman of Parliamentary Committee for Energy and Household Utilities and the MP from Servant of the People posted this on his Telegram channel.
"The Russian Federation halted the coal transit from Kazakstan, which was on its way to Ukraine. All respective supplies in November are blocked", Gerus wrote.
He added that technical blockade takes place on the level of Russian Railways, the company that does not let the freight wagons with Kazakh coal the across the country. This only concerns the supplies of steam coal, not the coking coal, the MP added.
It is provided that the signatory countries will gradually abandon the construction of new coal-fired power plants and will no longer invest in this industry. Richer economies promise to do this in the 2030s, and smaller economies in the 2040s.
