Ukraine opens a railway line with Moldova
Ukraine, together with Moldova, is launching a railway line, which was built after the start of a full-scale Russian invasion.
According to European Pravda, with reference to the statements of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine and Moldova, as well as the customs services of both countries, on March 22, the departments announced the signing of a Protocol on the organization of joint control at the checkpoint for the Serpneve-1 – Basarabeasca railway.
“We see this as a great opportunity to expand both our export potential and the transit capabilities of Moldova, and in the future, after our victory, this will contribute to the expansion of the export of Moldovan enterprises to foreign markets using the logistics of the ports of Odessa region. This will also serve as an impetus in the future for the growth of investments in terms of business, the development of transit potential and logistics routes,” added the Chairman of the State Customs Service of Ukraine Sergey Zvyagintsev.
Ukraine and Moldova’s border guards and customs officers have tentatively agreed in the coming days to begin joint control at the joint checkpoint for the Serpneve-1 – Basarabeasca railway.
Use of the transition will begin from midnight March 25th.
The new crossing makes it possible to largely compensate for the railway communication over the bridge in Zatoka, which has repeatedly become the object of Russian missile attacks.
