Earlier OstroV received a letter from readers who reported that as of March 3rd, according to cashiers, the only rail ticket offices in occupied Donetsk at the crossroad of the Teatralna and Universytetska Street stopped working, they accepted payment exclusively in UAH.
The ticket offices are closed today, there is a notice at the door that the ticket sale is not possible due to the shutdown of the terminal equipment.
The source confirmed that Ukrzaliznytsia had closed access to the programme of the ticket sale not only for Donetsk but for all uncontrolled part where tickets used to be sold at 10 railway stations and 10 small stations.
"Donetsk railway on the uncontrolled territories is Ukrainian enterprise. Now 300 cashiers are in the risk of being dismissed. Income on tickets was used for paying salaries to employees,"- said OstroV’s interlocutor.
At the moment people stay to live on the uncontrolled by Ukraine territories for some reasons, it is possible to buy tickets online or on the controlled territory.
