Railway communication between Russia and Ukraine is terminated in itself, said the head of the Ministry of Infrastructure.

Minister of infrastructure Volodymyr Omelian announced that he supports the termination of railway communication with Russia, but the political decision on this issue should not wait. He stated this in an interview published on may 10.

The head of the Ministry of Infrastructure said that railway communication between Russia and Ukraine is shrinking by itself.

“I see that a political solution (although we support it) likely will not. However, it stops by itself, and we have a natural drop in the number of trips to Russia,” said Omeljan.

According to him, last year for the first time in the history of Ukraine the number of trips by rail in the EU countries exceeded the number of trips to the Russian side.

“Therefore, the reduction in the number of trains in Russia was completely objective,” the Minister added.

Earlier, Omeljan said that the train from Kiev and Lviv to Moscow will cancel in a few years.
