Russia and Latvia are two links in a uniform transportation system that spans the entire Eurasia.

Cargo traffic between Central Asia and Ukraine, Belarus and EU states generate the bulk of transportation flows running through our countries.

Our countries share a uniform standard of 1520 mm wheel track, which is different from the European 1435 mm gauge railway lines.
