"We are now considering the option of closing the railroad communication with Moscow," Omelian said.
In the summer of 2017, the Russian media outlet Kommersant said citing a source in the Ukrainian government that Ukraine was allegedly preparing to close passenger rail routes with Russia from July 1.
However, Ukraine’s state-run railroad operator Ukrzaliznytsia PJSC contested this information. The railroaders said the report on cutting railroad link with the Russian Federation from July 1 was false.
The Ministry of Infrastructure of Ukraine announced the complete cessation of air link with the Russian Federation from Oct. 25, 2015.
