Minister of Infrastructure Andrii Pyvovarskyi expects the new container train on the so-called New Silk Road to begin full commercial operation in March.
The Boryspil international airport handled 520,000 passengers in January, which is 4% more than the number of passengers it handled in the first month of 2015.
Infrastructure Minister Andrii Pyvovarskyi and Health Minister Alexander Kvitashvili have said that they will withdraw their resignation letters.
The task of the state and the Ukrzaliznytsia public railway company, which is a state monopoly, is primarily to respond to geopolitical challenges adequately.
Active work to diversify cargo transit routes can help Ukrzaliznytsia to compensate for its loss of revenue from transit of Russian goods. In addition to the Silk Road project, the cargo route from Black Sea ports to Ukraine’s western border crossings can be promising.
