May 22, 2012

Russia’s Transport Ministry backed OAO Russian Railways’ plan to increase rail freight tariffs by 10.5 percent to 11 percent a year in the next three years, Vedomosti reported, citing a ministry letter.

The increase, which still needs approval by other ministries, is bigger than the previous plan to raise Russia’s railway monopoly freight tariffs by 5.5 percent in 2013, the newspaper said.
