Reportedly, the Russian route is about three times more expensive than the shorter Pakistani one, but the air freight from Afghanistan is ten times more expensive. Reportedly, the shift to the Russian route has been costing the US an additional $100 million a month against previous payments to Pakistan.
We open the gate and make money, Rogozin said to Echo Moskvy radio station. He stressed that there will be no NATO personnel anywhere on the route just containers from the alliance being transported by Russian railway and Russian trucks.
In April Russias Public Chamber discussed establishing an Ulyanovsk logistics hub for NATO needs. In the end, the body agreed the undertaking would be profitable in several different respects. The preliminary expenses of evacuating ISAF depots from Afghanistan are estimated at $1.5-3 billion. Also, new jobs are expected to be created in Ulyanovsk. Members of the Chamber have pointed out that the transportation of NATO supplies would also allow Russia to monitor whats coming in and going out.
