In the new transport concept promoted by China, there is no place for Ukraine to move cargo and passengers to the European Union.

The president of the Ukrainian Analytical Center, Okhrimenko, said at a press conference in Kiev, that Ukraine is absent from the Chinese project The New Silk Road, although earlier the option of transit through Ukraine was considered.

“But since there are a lot of questions, I understand, now they are betting more on Belarus. And there is very bad news. Now China has proposed a truly new Silk Road: China, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, involving Turkey and Georgia. Ukraine is not there. We completely fell out. ” the economist said.

At the same time, he recalled that Ukraine once earned $ 2.5 billion on rail transport alone.

“Now there is not even a billion, today we are trampling in the range of 300 – 400 million dollars. I understand that over time it will fall further, “- predicts Ohrimenko.
