Any decisions on limiting or stopping railway communication between Ukraine and the Russian Federation are not within the competence of PJSC Ukrzaliznytsia, acting board chairman of the company Yevhen Kravtsov has said.
"We are an operator and do not make decisions about opening or closing international communication," he told journalists in Kyiv, asked about the need to close this route.
He noted if such a decision is made at the ministry level and is supported by the government, Ukrzaliznytsia will only have to fulfill it.
"If to talk about passenger traffic with Russia, for us it is profitable. Speaking about cargo traffic, about transit, exports, imports, it is in a profitable range," Kravtsov said.
