Ukrzaliznytsia transferred scheduling of rail traffic from the hostility area of Donetsk to territory controlled by Ukraine as of April 20th which led to the almost total suspension of railway traffic from the occupied part of the region. It is reported by segodnya.ua.

"More than 100 freight trains stand idle", - said the representative of Metinvest during the meeting of Minister of Infrastructure Vladimir Omelyan with members of the European Business Association in Kiev on Friday.
