The temperature in the cars Suite and the compartment should not exceed 26 degrees and needs to be air-conditioned. To the second-class carriages there is no such requirement, but should work ventilation. The handler must include a ventilation or air conditioning a half hour before boarding. Check the temperature by thermometer – they are in every car.

According to “Ukrzaliznytsia”, in 62% of the cars there is no air conditioning. Almost all second-class carriages, they are generally not provided. And state health standards do not set maximum permissible temperature in cars. However, have to work ventilation. Its serviceability can be checked if exposed to the ventilation of the hand. If it does not blow – it is necessary to require the conductor to turn on the ventilation, since it is prohibited to turn off. Also need to choose the right place, because not all car Windows are opened, as are the emergency exits. In second-class carriages are places from 9 to 12 and from 21 to 24, and – 43, 44, 49 and 50.

If the car or a luxury coupe is not air conditioned – you need to write a complaint and demand a transfer in the car with air conditioning. The complaint can be duplicated on the hotline “Ukrzaliznytsya”.
