Tuka: Luhansk administration, Ukrzaliznytsia will build new railway line
Luhansk region military and civil administration head Georgy Tuka says his office and PJSC Ukrzaliznytsia will sign a memorandum on Tuesday to build a new 45-kilometer-long railway line in Luhansk region.
"Today we will sign a memorandum with Ukrzaliznytsia on the construction of a line that will connect the areas adjacent to the contact line [in Donbas] and Ukrainian-controlled regions," he said at a briefing in Kyiv on Tuesday.

Tuka said that the construction of this 45-kilometer-long branch is important for the development of agriculture, as there are six large grain storage facilities in that area. Transportation of grain by road in this area is complicated.
