Also, according to Novak, Russia, in order to diversify coal exports, activates settlements in national currencies, such mechanisms are already provided for deliveries to China and India.

“In order to diversify exports, attention is being paid to intensifying settlements in national currencies. Such mechanisms are already provided for when paying for coal supplies with China, India and other countries,” the Deputy Prime Minister wrote.

He stressed that the absence of Russia in some of the world’s coal markets creates problems for consumers, leads to increased demand and higher prices.

Novak recalled that since February, the United States has refused to import Russian coal, since April – Australia, since August – the EU countries. The UK plans to end purchases before the end of the year.

At the same time, the Deputy Prime Minister pointed out that Russia ranks second in terms of coal reserves in the world, sixth in terms of production, and also, along with Indonesia and Australia, is one of the top three suppliers – the share of the total exports of these three countries is more than 80%.
