In his opinion, in this way Ukrzaliznytsia will receive better quality cars at a better price, and KVSZ will significantly improve the range and expand the sales market for its products, reports Railway Supply magazine with reference to urm.media.

“We have far-reaching plans – together with the Minister of Infrastructure Oleksandr Kubrakov, we have an idea to launch capsule cars in Ukraine. This is a completely different experience for passengers – and an understanding of where UZ as a company needs to strive. But for now these are plans … ”, – Alexander Kamyshin.

On August 11, at a meeting of the Cabinet of Ministers, Alexander Kamyshin was approved as the interim head of Ukrzaliznytsia.
