Rail Route Tested Through Ukraine-Georgia-Azerbaijan-Kazakhstan

Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatenyuk announced on 13 January 2016 that an experimental train would run from the Ukraine to Kazakhstan, via Georgia and Azerbaijan. The route will initially run freight services in order to supply goods to those countries which are otherwise relatively inaccessible, because the Russian transit and trade embargo it is now extremely difficult to deliver these goods.

If the test run is a success, regular freight services on the route will provide a significant boost to the Ukrainian economy. The subject has since been discussed in Baku by the Ministry of Infrastructure of Ukraine and the Ukrzaliznytsia, as well as high-level discussion with Prime Ministers of Kazakhstan and Azerbaijan.

Addressing a Government Meeting, Mr. Yatenyuk said:

Our goal is to have a single through rate, to maximally load this train. Thus, if we load it, the transportation cost of Ukrainian goods will be much lower.
“After the signing of appropriate agreements, on Friday we launch the first experimental train and prolong active work with our partners to actually build an alternative path for supplying Ukrainian goods.”
