Renewal of the railway, modernization of rolling stock and railways will be the next important area of the Large Construction National Program. This was stated by President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy during a speech at the "Large Construction: A New Railway" Forum.

"Today we present a new "next". The next, very important direction - the new Ukrainian railway - begins. For years, the railway has been destroyed by "corrosion": bad management and corruption. Like rust, it was covered with opacity and inefficiency. Because of that, it has become accordingly not cheap, inconvenient, and even dangerous. The condition to which our railway has been brought over the years can be briefly but aptly described as follows: a prehistoric locomotive that barely pulls a train with creaking carriages on worn-out tracks to dirty stations and uncomfortable stations,” the President said.

In addition, cooperation was resumed with a key national enterprise in the field of car building - Kryukov plant, which today presented new diesel trains. Ukrzaliznytsia will receive three of them by the end of the year.

"Also this year, Ukrzaliznytsia will receive 20 new sleeping cars - the first of the announced hundred. There are plans to build another 500 in the next two years. These are modern Ukrainian sleeping cars, of which I am really not ashamed,” Volodymyr Zelenskyy said.

"We can already see the first important positive results. For the first time in 12 months, Ukrzaliznytsia has become profitable. For the first time in a long time, the cost of freight transportation has increased; understated tariffs in favor of big business remained in the past. Instead, there are an additional 2 billion hryvnias that Ukrzaliznytsia has received this year, and more than 12 billion hryvnias that the company will definitely receive next year,” the President said.
