In the area of ATO suspended rail freight

The issue of rail transportation in the Donbass will be made at the Minsk negotiations.

Ukrzaliznytsia from April 20 has transferred control of the railway movement in the area of the ATO from Donetsk on the territory they control, which resulted in almost complete suspension of railway traffic with uncontrolled territories, reports Interfax-Ukraine.

“For more than 100 freight trains stand idle”, – said the representative of Metinvest company at the meeting of the Minister of infrastructure Vladimir omelyana with members of the European business Association (EBA) in Kyiv.

According to the Minister, one of the reasons for dispatching transfer are improper demands, which are regularly nominated companies with Ukrainian registration on the territory uncontrolled.

Omelyan noted that this issue will be transferred to the format of the Minsk talks, and predicted that his decision would take some time, so we can hardly expect that he will decide “in a week”.

The Minister noted that this issue is beyond the scope of Ukrzaliznytsia and the Ministry of Infrastructure, and they are engaged in anti-Terrorist centre, the NSDC and the foreign Ministry.

“We launched an alternative dispatching, which went wrong all the supervised territory”, – stated Omelian.

Earlier metallurgical enterprises of Donbass appealed to the authorities not to stop rail service with the region, because it will impact on Ukrainian exports and filling the state budget.
