DONETSK, November 20. /TASS/. Passenger train traffic between Donetsk and Crimea's Sevastopol was halted because of continuing artillery shelling of the Donetsk railway station, a spokesperson for the Transport Ministry of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR), Ella Zhuranskaya, told TASS on Thursday.
“We must not let lives of passengers and railway personnel be exposed to danger. Because of this, trains do not depart from the Donetsk station for Sevastopol so far, but trains depart from Kostiantynivka,” she said.
Earlier, the DPR’s Transport Minister Semyon Kuzmenko said the republic’s authorities planned to open two new routes beginning December 1 between Donetsk and Moscow and Donetsk-Kiev.
