This was announced by Minister of Transport Yevgeny Dietrich at a meeting with the head of state on May 7. Loading on the Russian Railways network decreased by 11%, cargo transportation of highly profitable goods (oil and metals) decreased by 20%.
Domestic Russian trucking in March and April showed a decrease of almost a third. Cargo turnover fell on water transport - by 14%.
