MOSCOW, November 15 (Itar-Tass) —— The booking of railroad tickets to Ukraine for the period after December 3 has resumed partially, a source in the Federal Passenger Company, a subsidiary of Russian Railways, told Itar-Tass on Tuesday.
“We are selling tickets to trains, whose schedule has been coordinated fully. Tickets to other trains will be sold when their schedule is coordinated,” the source said.
The Federal Passenger Company told Itar-Tass in the end of November that the Ukrainian switch to the winter time might cause train delays from ten minutes to 3 hours 17 minutes from October 30 to December 3.
The Verkhovna Rada decided to stop shifting to the winter time on September 20, and the adjustment of the schedule of railroad traffic to Ukraine and farther on to Europe started. The Verkhovna Rada cancelled the decision on October 18 and the schedule had to be changed again.
The new traffic schedule will come into effect on December 3, the company said.
“The booking was suspended for the period of the adjustment of the railroad traffic schedule caused by the Verkhovna Rada’s decision to stop shifting to the winter time,” the company said.
Trains to Ukraine will travel in accordance with the earlier schedule on October 31 – December 3.
