The Ukrainian Railways public joint-stock company (Ukrzaliznytsia) is considering the possibility of launching another train from Kyiv to Przemysl (Poland) via a new route.
Minister of Infrastructure Volodymyr Omelian announced this at a news briefing in Kyiv on Tuesday, 6 June, the CFTS correspondent reports.
“Ukrzaliznytsia is now working on launching the second pair of the Kyiv-Przemysl train on the so-called southern route, through Ternopil, Khmelnitsky, Vinnitsa," the minister said.
According to him, the new train will offer comfortable transfers to Mariupol, Lysychansk, and Odesa.
A Kyiv-Przemysl train currently passes through the stations Sviatoshin, Korosten, Podzamcze, and Lviv.
An initiative on electrification of the Zhytomyr – Novohrad-Volynsky railway stretch was recently announced with the aim of, among other things, launching a Kyiv-Przemysl train through Zhytomyr.
Omelian also announced the launch of a passenger "train of five capitals," which will connect Ukraine with the Baltic States, at the news briefing. In particular, the train will link Kyiv, Minsk, Vilnius, Riga, and Tallinn.
