The Government of the Republic of Kazakhstan has sent a request to the Russian Government concerning the consideration of the possibility of transit through the territory of the Russian Federation of strategically important goods. This category includes only industrial goods, which are in high importance for domestic production. The list does not include food products, which are in the list of sanctioned goods.

Deputy Chairman of the National Chamber of Entrepreneurs of Kazakhstan, Dana Zhunusova says, the country should find other ways to get Ukrainian products. Probably, they could use the potential of the seaport for transit of cargo from Ukraine to Kazakhstan. Now about 70% of goods from Turkey to Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan follow the specified sea route. So this option is highly possible for Ukrainian goods.
