The first test train departed from the new Peremoha subway station in Kharkiv on 4 August, the CFTS reports, citing information of the Kharkiv city council.

The subway station is scheduled to open on 23 August.

"The thirtieth subway station is ready. The task set for before by Kharkiv residents has been performed. We will thank everyone involved in this during the official opening of the station," Kharkiv’s Mayor Kernes said.

According to him, 50,000 passengers will use the subway station per day.

As the CFTS portal earlier reported, Kharkiv earlier said that the construction work at the subway station was 99% complete as of 30 June and promised to finish the work before 17 August.
