The Ukrainian Railways public joint-stock company (Ukrzaliznytsia) plans to stop offering tea on long-distance night trains at the price of UAH 7.2 from next week.

Oleksandr Krasnoshtan, the deputy head of Ukrzaliznytsia’s department of long-distance passenger transportation, announced this in an exclusive interview with the CFTS.

The sale of tea at this price on trains began recently. It has caused inconvenience for passengers and conductors, many of who say they have problem giving change to passengers.

Asked why tea costs UAH 7.2 on trains, Krasnoshtan said, "At the time when the calculation was made, it was calculated that way... However, this is an inconvenience for both passengers and employees. I think we will change it next week. I am not ready to say in which direction."
