Russol, Russia’s largest salt producer, warns of potential supply problems.
Supply disruptions may occur due to restrictions imposed by the railway operator in Kazakhstan.
The deposit in the Orenburg region provides 40% of salt supplies to Russia, but the service station is managed by the railway administration of Kazakhstan. The supply of empty gondola cars is stopped due to the accumulation of own and rented gondola cars, which are used to transport salt.
A representative of the Russol company explained that the risk of a complete cessation of production is very high, since already now, due to the actions of the railways, production is practically not working.
Earlier it was reported that Russian motorists are waiting Problems when preparing a car for winter due to sanctions.
