As for trains of regional lines, the ticket from Minsk to Molodechno will rise in price by 41 kopecks (UAH 4.35).

Tickets for trains of interregional lines will become more expensive both in economy class and business class. For example, a first-class train trip from Minsk to Gomel will increase in price by 4.44 rubles. (47 UAH).
