By the end of the year Ukrzaliznytsia will be profitable, - Alexander Kamyshin

He stated this during a meeting of the Temporary Investigative Commission of the Verkhovna Rada on the inspection and assessment of the state of the joint-stock company, which took place on September 23, informs Railway Supply magazine with reference to Railinsider.

“I have a proposal – to put a box of wine on a dispute that by the end of the year Ukrzaliznytsya will be profitable. For the Committee and for TIC “, – said the head of the UZ.

Wojciech Balczun said what he thinks about the current problems of Ukrzaliznytsia

Following the results of the first half of the year, UZ recorded a loss of UAH 1.4 billion.

“In August, the company received UAH 150 million in profit,” stressed Alexander Kamyshin. This was due to an increase in traffic volumes and railway tariffs. In addition, at the next meeting of the TIC, the official must submit a four-month plan to get UZ out of the crisis.
