LUHANSK, December 26. /TASS/. Railway workers of the self-proclaimed Luhansk People’s Republic (LPR) have finished the preparatory stage to resume railway service between Luhansk and Moscow, acting chief of the Luhansk Railways’ regional directorate Gennady Borodin said on Friday.

Railway lines, cars and locomotives have been repaired. Necessary documents are prepared for resuming the railway service, the news agency Luhansk Information Center said.

“Unfortunately, not everything depends on railway workers because there is a political moment. We work on this problem,” Borodin said.

Chairman of the LPR People’s Council Alexey Karyakin said the resumption of railway service between Luhansk and Moscow had been set as one of the steps due to be taken by Ukraine to lift the economic blockade on Luhansk.

On December 25, LPR head Igor Plotnitsky said Luhansk would consider the resumption of railway service between Luhansk and Moscow Kiev’s first step towards lifting the economic and social blockade on Donbas.
