On March 15, Kharkiv plans to resume ground passenger urban electric transport, which was stopped after a massive missile attack by Russian occupants on the night of March 9. Railway Supply magazine wrote this, citing the CFTS.


“Unfortunately, there is serious damage to transformer substations and power outages. So yesterday we were forced to temporarily shut down one subway line, but now the subway is fully operational again. If everything goes well, according to our rough estimations, on Wednesday, March 15 in the morning trolleybuses and trams will go on the city routes”, – told the mayor of Kharkiv Igor Terekhov.
