The British railway operator Southeastern launched a train called Spirit of Ukraine on the anniversary of the full-scale Russian invasion. Ukrainian Railways reports.

"The train, the livery of which depicts the Ukrainian flag, symbolizes the connection between the Ukrainians who evacuated to Britain since the beginning of the war, and the British, who gladly accepted them," the company emphasized.

Spirit of Ukraine also captures the enormous efforts Ukrainian Railways have put into keeping their country moving during the most difficult of times by evacuating people from danger and keeping the country on the move against almost impossible circumstances.

In the communities Southeastern serves, over 4,000 people from Ukraine have been welcomed into people’s homes, including those of some of the company’s staff, since February 2022.

Spirit of Ukraine, which now runs from London to the southeast of England to Kent, according to the carrier, is also a sign of respect for the Ukrainian railway workers, who made possible the evacuation of 4 million people and the operation of the road of life even during the war.

"We are grateful to the British railway workers and the entire community for sheltering Ukrainians and supporting our movement to victory," Ukrzaliznytsia said.
