    MOSCOW, March 3 (RIA Novosti) - 2004 is seeing a considerable growth in transit traffic via Russian ports, the Russian Railways joint-stock company points out. At the same time, there is a lasting fall in traffic through Ukrainian and Baltic ports.

    In January 2004 the company's freight traffic through Russian, Ukrainian and Baltic ports totaled 569,600 tons, with 313,700 tons accounting for the Russian ones. This is 38,000 tons less than in January 2003.

    Transit traffic through Ukrainian ports dropped from 383,800 tons to 75,200 tons year on year. Baltic ports showed the same trend - from 445,400 tons in January 2003 to 175,600 tons in January 2004.

    "The shift in transit traffic has been brought about by putting new ports into operation as well as the growing capacity of old Russian ports," Russian Railways message reads.
