KEMEROVO, 23 November – RIA Novosti. Governor Sergey Tsivilev said that due to Western sanctions, Kuzbass will export a maximum of 48.5 million tons of coal to the markets of the Asia-Pacific region, instead of the planned 58 million tons, and that it is planned to reduce coal exports in 2023. In a budget message to deputies of the Legislative Assembly of the Kemerovo region.
“The situation in the (coal production) industry is complex. Coal companies came under sanctions and Russia’s embargo on coal supplies to EU countries came into effect on August 10. Our coal miners found new markets, built new supply chains. But still, the main problem is not coal exports. He said.
Also, according to the governor, in 2023, on behalf of the president, 63 million tons should be exported from Kuzbass to the east.
“And Russian Railways offers us 52.5 million tons of exports, which is 10.5 million tons less than stated in the presidential order. At the same time, our coal miners are able to extract much more coal products and supply them to consumers,” Tsivilev said.
The governor also emphasized that the increase in coal exports to the east remains the most important issue for the region, which Kuzbass officials will defend at all levels.
