MOSCOW, August 8 (Itar-Tass) — The movement of trains has been suspended in Karelia because of the washout of a railroad bed, the republican emergency department’s press service told Itar-Tass on Wednesday.
“A partial washout of the railroad bed has occurred between Sosnovets and Letniy of the Oktyabrskaya Railway Line. So, since 11.11 a.m. the movement of trains has been suspended on this section,” the press service said.
