 Another Scandal With Kolesnikov’s Hyundai: Passengers Went from Donetsk to Kyiv Without Heating

Speed “supertrain” Hyundai is once again in the middle of a scandal.

Yesterday morning, the train Donetsk - Kyiv was left without heating, reports novosti.dn.ua.

Hyundai left Donetsk at 6:30 am, and about an hour later there was an announcement to the passengers that due to technical malfunctions the heating is off. As a result, the temperature inside the train dropped down to +4 C.

The Ukrainian speed rail company that is responsible for the train has not yet commented the incident.

Earlier Hyundai train heading from Kyiv to Kharkiv on October 31 stood for two hours in the middle of the field.

"Our Hyundai broke down and stood for two hours in the open field. Heating system was off, there was no hot tea," wrote one of the passengers on Facebook.

From the windows of the car the passengers saw that one of the wires was practically on the roof of the train.

About an hour later a train with repair team came which started fixing the problem. Hyundai was repaired and about an hour later resumed its trip to Kharkiv.
