    So wait a minute....

    In this regard, RZD International, which is in charge of the holding's foreign projects, has stopped work on electrification of the Garmsar - Inche Burun line and closes a branch in Tehran.

    "JSC RZD [Russian Railways] expresses confidence that withdrawal of RZD International from the Garmsar - Inche Bourun Project shall not affect the partnership between Russian Railways and Iranian Railways, which is carried out first of all in the field of international logistics including the International North - South Transport Corridor development," the company wrote in a statement.

    JSC RZD is Russian Railways, and RZD International is the part of JSC RZD that handles international contracts, so that the contract does not impact on other projects around the world.

    What we don't know is whether there is another Russian company, that doesn't operate anywhere else around the world, that has stepped in to do the work.

    Hopefully that is the case...

    We can complain about it, but at the end of the day if they are making 2 billion on this project but US sanctions could cost them 20 billion then it makes sense to drop out. It would also make sense to screw any American subcontractor as far as you can or just eliminate them from your business and start making yourself more sanction proof.

    Russia is preparing a new railway for the Northern Sea Route
    Wish they had included a map.

    The Russian government has started considering the construction of Railways to the Northern sea route as part of the new Siberian Meridian project, which was announced by Russian President Vladimir Putin at a meeting of the Valdai club in 2019.

    As reported on Friday, the publication "Zapolyarnaya Pravda", the project is planned to implement previously planned construction projects, including the Northern wide course, as well as new lines in Siberia and the Arctic, stretching thousands of kilometers.

    Previously, the cost of the project "Siberian Meridian" will be 4.93 trillion rubles. The project assumes that by 2035, a railway freight service will be established between Russia and China bypassing the TRANS-Siberian railway, which will cover large areas in the Arctic and Siberia

    "The construction of a double — track electrified railway ring Salekhard — Nadym — Urengoy — Surgut — Tyumen — Yekaterinburg — Perm — Yaroslavl—Ob-Salekhard will begin," the material says.

    The Russian President spoke about the development of this route in October last year, noting that this would allow the TRANS-Siberian railway to be unloaded, while providing the first clusters of the Angara-Yenisei macroregion with transport capacity, contribute to the development of the Arctic transport hub, and free up the way for passenger transport.

    "The" Siberian Meridian "includes the projects" Northern latitudinal course "Ob-Salekhard-Nadym-Khorey and" Northern latitudinal course-2 " Bovanenkovo-Sabetta, the section of Kyzyl-Kuragino is proposed to extend to the border station ARS-Suuri, which will connect it with the projected Mungan —Ovoot — Erdenet line in Mongolia," the publication reports.

    It is noted that the Union "Northern Industrialists and entrepreneurs" about ten years ago proposed to include in the development Strategy of Siberia until 2020 the construction of a railway to Igarka and Norilsk, but then the project was not implemented.

    This is old news, but the video is interesting. Russia is reviving the frozen project for rail links in Siberia that were planned
    under Stalin. Scumbag, 5th column maggot Khruschev iced the project and stopped development of this important region
    of Russia. Now the US is worried about Russia reviving the project. Which is a very good thing, since it means the
    project is good for Russia to the point of boosting its global power.


    This project provides hard transport links to the Yamal and its natural gas extraction activity. This project also will service
    the North Sea Route by creating substantial port infrastructure.

    The north sea route will greatly increase shipping traffic along the northern border of Russia, which means more business for ports along the NSR. Having rail links leading from those ports south to connect main rail links across Russia would greatly improve access to the region.

    It is comparable to the united states of america where europeans arrived on the east coast from europe and had a long hard journey ahead of them to get to the west coast... not train no roads no planes and no easy way to sail there by ship at the time except to go round the southern tip of south america...

    Building rail lines and then roads opened up the country and allowed enormous growth and development... the same will happen in the Russian arctic and far east.... of course the Americans oppose that... they harbour dreams of Siberia breaking away from Russia and selling oil and wood and gas to the US cheap in return for protection from evil Russia... you know... the way they hoped the Ukraine would turn out... except all the Ukraine had was coal and an oil and gas dependency on Russia.
