    The Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine expects the newly appointed Supervisory Board of the PJSC Ukrzaliznytsia to shape the development strategy of the company, which in the future would determine the clear vector of development of the Ukrainian railway in all directions. This was announced  during a meeting with independent members of the Supervisory Board by Vice Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Kistion.

    According to him, for the shareholder of Ukrzaliznytsia it is important that the company's corporate governance system is in line with the best European practices, and no kopeck was spent in vain, but worked for the  benefit of the enterprise - modernizing the rolling stock and meeting the needs of the Ukrainian economy in transportation.

    The Vice Prime Minister placed a special emphasis on pressing issues for the business representatives that became subjects of their appealing to the Government during the last month. "Situations that cause irreparable losses to Ukraine are unacceptable. Business complains about the lack of wagons and locomotives. Therefore, I would also like to commission to study the issues of freight transport as thoroughly as possible", he added.

    Volodymyr Kistion also touched upon the issue of managing the property of Ukrzaliznytsia. "The order of disposal of the property came into force early this year. It stipulates  for the introduction of a transparent property management system and  additional  revenues to the tune of UAH 50 million for their further reinvestment in the modernization of the enterprise. But the issue is now at the standstill, "the Vice Prime Minister underscored.

    In turn, the members of the Supervisory Board of PJSC "Ukrzaliznytsya" assured the Vice Prime Minister that they are highly responsible for their new role in Ukraine and are committed to effectively carrying out all tasks set by the shareholder of the company.
