“Technically, the most difficult delays are Intercity+, the heating of which depends on the power grid. We equip with thermal blankets, but still – we have to carry passengers comfortably and warmly, so today 2 routes – to Kramatorsk (712) and to the Dnieper (732) – were picked up by long-distance trains with autonomous heating systems. We inform all international partners in detail – they provide dedicated locomotives to ensure connection, will help Ukrainians arriving at their stations,” the message says.
Hubs with tea, coffee, hot meals from World Central Kitchen, children’s rooms, recharging and recreation areas are deployed at the stations.
