On April 2, 2022, Ukrainian Railways invites the media to visit the railway border crossing between Ukraine and Poland at Mostyska-2 station

With the support of private businesses, the state-owned company intends to build a transshipment point from 1520 wide track carriages (Ukraine standard) to 1435 narrow gauge carriages (EU standard). A new terminal will be created at the station to transport grain – the main export cargo. Terminal capacity expansion projects are also being prepared at other stations.

The enemy russia is currently blocking Ukraine’s main seaports and only two ports of Ukraine – Izmail and Reni – can transship cargo for export, but in small quantities. Therefore, Ukrainian railways plan to reorient freight traffic to western crossings and at least double their capacity.

Accreditation of journalists by link till today (April 1st 16.00) For security reasons, Ukrainian Railways will be able to accredit a limited number of journalists. The place and time of the train departure will be announced separately to the media representatives who will be accredited (today, April 1st till 17.00) 

The event will include a tour of the Mostyska-2 station, a briefing by Oleksandr Kamyshin, Chairman of the Board of Ukrainian Railways JSC, and a briefing by Viktor Kovtko, Production Director of “Agrarian Perspective”
