Russian retail chains are fully provided with salt reserves, Igor Karavaev, chairman of the presidium of the Association of Retail Trade Companies (AKORT), told RIA Novosti. He noted that deliveries are regular. The comment followed publication RBC, according to which Russol, Russia's largest salt producer, may experience interruptions in supplies.
“Supplies are regular, the assortment is constantly replenished and there are enough stocks in warehouses,” said Mr. Karavaev.
According to RBC, supply disruptions are possible due to the fact that the Kazakh authorities will temporarily ban the use of their railway infrastructure. The introduced restrictions are related to the accumulation of empty gondola cars on the main network of Kazakhstani railways. The press service of Russian Railways "RIA Novosti" said that there are no restrictions from the Russian side.
