Donbas conflict zone closed to passenger trains

Ukrzaliznytsia plans to suspend passenger transportation in the area of the anti-terrorist operation in Luhansk and Donetsk regions.
Head of the Legal Department at Ukrzaliznytsia Oleh Tytov said this at a press conference on Tuesday, a Ukrinform correspondent reported.
“We will stop the movement of passenger trains in the area of the anti-terrorist operation. That is, we will transport people to the so-called border. When exactly this happens depends on the [Infrastructure] Ministry. A presidential decree [No. 875/2014 on the decision of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine of November 4, 2014 on urgent measures to stabilize the socio-economic situation in Donetsk and Luhansk regions] stipulates that the concerned ministry exercises control and makes the final decision,” Tytov said.
