Skoda train will shuttle between Lugansk and Donetsk
This spring fast and comfortable train manufactured by Skoda will start running between Lugansk and Donetsk, reports the government portal citing the Lugansk Regional State Administration.
The regional government is hoping that the launch of the new train will boost passenger traffic between the two cities. “Now the passengers from one regional center would reach another in less than two hours as Skoda speeds up to 100 mph," the report says.
The leadership of Lugansk region already mulls the plans to build a high-speed rail links Lugansk-Kiev and Lugansk-Moscow.
