MOSCOW, April 16. /ITAR-TASS/. A passenger train Moscow-Kislovodsk that had been running across the territory of Ukraine was ordered to a bypass route on Wednesday because unidentified protesters had blocked the railroad in Ukraine’s Donetsk Oblast.

The train, which was en route via the town of Kramatorsk in the Donetsk region, was ordered to a different route, which runs through Sloviansk, Krasnyi Lyman and Mykytivka, a source from the Russian Railways company told ITAR-TASS. It did not say how long it might take the train to reach the destination, running via the bypass.

Earlier, the Russian railway authorities had expected another train running from Kislovodsk to Moscow to be ordered to a bypass. "Nonetheless, we have been informed that the train's usual route has not been changed," the source said.

The train schedule in the Donetsk region was broken on Wednesday after unidentified protesters had blocked railway traffic in the section Kramatorsk-Druzhkovka. Railway traffic has been resumed by now.

Earlier, the press service of the Donetsk Railway said that 13 return long distance trains and 14 return commuter trains usually run through Kramatorsk per day.
