The Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine does not plan to stop the railway communication of Ukraine with Russia. This was stated by the Minister of infrastructure Vladimir Omelian, writes “Obozrevatel”.
“Now the question of the termination of railroad or bus passenger traffic of Ukraine with Russia our government was not considered”, — he said.
However, Omeljan added that, in his opinion, any communication with the Russian Federation followed a long time to stop, as was done with the airline in 2015.
As reported in the Russian media that Ukraine is allegedly planning to discontinue a railway passenger service with the Russian Federation. The source noted that the pretext for this decision will be the reluctance of “Russian Railways” (RZD) “to stop passenger transportation in Russia from the zone of hostilities and, in particular, from Donetsk, which violates the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine.”
In “Ukrzaliznytsia” later noted that he did not consider the possibility of terminating passenger railway communication with Russia.
