The first train of the Warsaw Metro, series 81, arrived in Kyiv in the morning. In total, 60 wagons will be delivered to the capital of Ukraine. It is reported by Railway Supply magazine with reference to Raport Kolejowy.


The shipment of the wagons began on the evening of 26 April. Early in the morning the trucks reached the border with Ukraine, from where they proceeded to Kyiv.
