Artem Myronovych has been appointed as the executive director of the South-Western Railway, a division of the Ukrainian Railways joint-stock company (Ukrzaliznytsia).

Ukrzaliznytsia announced this in a statement, the CFTS portal reports.

His appointment was approved by Ukrzaliznytsia’s board.

“The task of the new head of the South-Western Railway is to stabilize the division’s financial condition, attract additional freight volumes, and continue the implementation and development of key infrastructure projects,” Ukrzaliznytsia’s acting Board Chairman Ivan Yurik said.

According to Ukrzaliznytsia, Myronovych worked in the railway industry from 2015 to 2019. In particular, he was the deputy director of the South-Western Railway from 2015 to 2017 and the deputy director of the Passenger Company, another division of Ukrzaliznytsia, from 2018 to 2019.

Previously, Myronovych was the board chairman of the Ukrbudmaterialy corporation, the director of the Amberger Kaolinwerke company (Germany), and the general director of the Intelgroup corporation.

As the CFTS reported earlier, Ukrzaliznytsia recently dismissed the management of the Ukrainian High-Speed Rail Company for organizing a non-transparent tender for provision of catering services on high-speed trains. Disciplinary measures will be taken against the company’s employees responsible for the tender and the materials of the relevant audit will be sent to law enforcement agencies.
