KIEV, February 19, (ITAR-TASS) - Authorities of Ukraine’s capital city will not resume the work of the underground until the situation in the city stabilises, head of the municipal administration Vladimir Makeyenko said in an interview with 112 television channel.
“Right now we do not have a right to resume train movement in the underground, until we are sure every person in the underground - at the stairs, on a train or platform - is safe,” he said adding trips by the ground kinds of transport would remain free for the time being. Besides, the city’s authorities have asked private transport companies not to charge passengers.
The traffic along three lines of Kiev’s underground was suspended on Tuesday evening due to the mass clashes in central Kiev. In the unrest, car owners hurried to shelter their vehicles away from the central districts. The roads practically stopped in collapse, thus adding security reasons to the city’s authorities to close the underground.
Passengers had to look for alternative routes. Only taxi drivers seem to have benefited from the situation, as some of them chose to inflate fares dramatically.
