LUHANSK, December 29. /TASS/. Kiev authorities pledged to settle the issue of resuming a train running from conflict-torn east Ukrainian city of Luhansk to Russia’s capital Moscow, leader of the self-proclaimed Luhansk People’s Republic (LPR) Igor Plotnitsky said on Monday.
“These talks have been held and are being held. We do not have a final decision, but specific Ukrainian officials pledged that the issue would be settled,” the Luhansk Information Center quoted him as saying.
Luhansk railway authorities have made all preparations to restart Luhansk-Moscow train, acting chief of Luhansk railway traffic authority Gennady Borodin said earlier.
At a meeting of the Contact Group on Ukraine held in the Belarusian capital Minsk on December 24, restoration of this train route was raised as a step which Kiev should take to lift an economic blockade from the Luhansk People’s Republic.
The Minsk talks also dwelt on possible resumption of Kiev-Luhansk and Odessa-Luhansk trains, as their last stopovers had been limited to railway station Krasny Liman since November 20.
