Deutsche Bahn denies the statement of Ukraine’s PM Oleksiy Honcharuk on passing of Ukrzalisnytsia (Ukrainian Railways) to its management for ten years, as ZN.ua reported citing Deutsche Bahn Spokesperson Kerstin Eckstein.
“German railway company Deutsche Bahn will provide consulting services to Ukrzalisnytsia,” Eckstein said.
There is no issue about management, according to the spokesperson.
“These services would be provided by DB Engineering & Consulting company, which enters Deutsche Bahn. It will help the Ukrainian company to solve the number of business and technical issues,” he added.
According to Interfax-Ukraine, Ukraine's Infrastructure Minister Vladyslav Krykliy stated that the ministry intends to involve the management of Deutsche Bahn for cooperation and development of Ukrzalisnytsia as the advisors with the possibility of changing of their status in the future.
According to him, Ukraine will consult with the German experts, particularly, in two directions, the development of passenger and cargo transportation.
