Thousands of railway workers confront the bad weather in Ukraine

Over the past day, more than 3000 railway workers have been involved in snow fighting activities in Ukraine. It was especially “hot” on the Odessa highway. Here the thickness of the snow cover reached 30 cm, and icing added additional troubles. Bad weather almost paralyzed automobile traffic, and rail transport remained almost the only one that was working properly.
