Ukrainians leaving dangerous areas and occupied cities will receive financial support from the state during the evacuation.

JSC "Ukrzaliznytsia" received the first 5 new passenger cars from KVSZ

It is reported by the railway magazine Railway Supply with reference to UZ.

To do this, Ukrzaliznytsia will cooperate with employees of Ukrposhta, who will issue funds at specially designated points at the railway station in Lviv. The list of stations will expand soon.

This process takes place as follows: railway employees form information about the payment of financial assistance directly during the movement of evacuation trains, where the number of children and adults have to be indicated.

Then these data are transferred to the employees of Ukrposhta, who, by the time the evacuation train arrives at the station, will organize everything necessary so that people can receive money immediately after leaving the train.

This project was created with the support of the Office of the President, the Ministry of Digital Transformation, the Ministry of Social Policy, the Ministry of Infrastructure, Ukrzaliznytsia and Ukrposhta.

Its goal is to convey to people who have not yet left the Donbass that they are expected. This project is an addition to the program “Where you are expected”, which allows you to select and order temporary accommodation options on the train.

The report also notes that passengers of five evacuation trains to Lviv have already received payments totaling UAH 340 000.
