Aeroflot Sees $1Bln CO2 Bill

Aeroflot says the European Union's move to force airlines to pay for carbon emissions may cost the company 800 million euros ($1 billion) to 2025.

"The quotas will be sold on the exchange, so the price will be higher," deputy chief executive Igor Chalik said. The EU may start demanding payments next year.

Russia is preparing a law that would bar Russian airlines from participating in EU carbon trading, Deputy Transportation Minister Valery Okulov said Thursday. Okulov, a former Aeroflot chief executive, estimated last month that Russian airlines may have to pay 20 million to 25 million euros a year under the EU measure.


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
