Ukrzaliznytsia presented an improved wagon for military forces
The national carrier has demonstrated modernized conditions for the comfortable transportation by rail of the Ukrainian Armed Forces by rail. This was reported on the website of the Ministry of Infrastructure and the site of "Ukrzaliznytsya".
For the escorts of the military echelons, the covered wagon was fitted with a kitchen, berths and a guard post. These household units are equipped with water supply and heating systems in winter.
In the near future PJSC “Ukrzaliznytsya” plans to prepare 14 more such cars. In the meantime, Deputy Minister of Infrastructure Yuriy Lavrenyuk expressed his hope that by the end of the summer this year the military guards will be fully provided with them.
The ministry also stated that rail transport for military personnel is currently being carried out according to instructions approved in Soviet times. Today, these standards are outdated and in need of change, so regulatory documents are currently being updated. The ministry promises to resolve the issue by the end of this month.
