This business is worth millions. Ukrainian oligarch Sergii Kurchenko pays mines
25-30 dollars per ton of anthracite. In the
West, coal goes for 100-160 dollars. More information on the site:
Only a small part of the coal is sent to Russia by truck.
The rest of the raw materials are exported by rail
through a section of the border that is controlled by separatists.
Among the several thousand wagons used for transportation,
some belong to the Ukrzaliznytsia company - the separatists have seized them in Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts.
The wagons are used illegally and from another point of view.
According to Russian legislation, trains manufactured
before 1985 are to be repaired once every 5 years.
Given the time of the beginning of the occupation,
this period has long expired, and the Ukrainian owner had no opportunity to repair the wagons.
However, first of all, trains of Russian Railways and another Russian state-owned freight company, FGK, enter
the territory of ORDL (Donetsk and Luhansk Regions).
According to the documentation, the freight trains stand on the side tracks of the Gukovo or Uspenskaya border stations
in the village of Avilo-Uspenka. This is reported by the portal
"Informpost", which has turned from a Debaltsevo
local site into an interesting source of information about
the occupied territory. In July 2019, there were 2,400 wagons in the
entire territory, almost 700 crossed the border daily in both directions,
passing only through the Uspenskaya station. The
freight cars took out anthracite, metal, and coke and brought in coal
concentrate, gasoline, oil, propane-butane, and
iron ore. There were also more interesting cargoes, for example, Informpost
reported about a salt wagon from Azerbaijan departing
from Khirdalan station, not far from Baku. ”
