At the meeting of the Council of national security and defense Council (NSDC) of Ukraine has not addressed the issue of the termination of passenger rail services between Ukraine and the Russian Federation. This is stated in the Council’s response to the request of the Agency “Interfax-Ukraine”.

“The question of the cessation of passenger transportation by rail in Russia at the meeting of the Council was not considered”, – said the press service of the NSDC.

Previously, the newspaper “Kommersant”, citing sources close to the Ukrainian government, reported that passenger traffic with Russia may be terminated from 1 July . In the words of the interlocutor of the edition, the pretext for this decision will be the reluctance of “Russian Railways” (RZD) “to stop passenger transportation in Russia from the ATO area and, in particular, from Donetsk, which violates the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine.”

In “Ukrzaliznytsia” has reported that information to the newspaper “Kommersant” about the termination of passenger traffic on 1 July “not true”. “Not going to stop, and do not consider this idea”, – said the press-center of “Ukrzaliznytsia”.
