BRUSSELS, July 14, 2014 (RISI) - Russia's newsprint giant Kondopoga has stopped all its paper machines following a planned maintenance period at its gas supplier Gazprom. The mill will be out of production until July 17, Kondopoga said.

The firm said that it plans to do some maintenance work on its equipment during that period, too.

Kondopoga can produce up to 760,000 tonnes/yr of newsprint and 16,000 tonnes/yr of kraft paper on its seven PMs.
