Most trains running from the western regions of Ukraine to Kyiv are more than 95% full. The chairman of the Board of Ukrzaliznytsia, Olexandr Kamyshin, announced it during a briefing at the capital's railway station.

"Most people now go from the west to Kyiv. Almost all such trains are over 95% full. We estimated that at least 11,000 people return to Kyiv every day by rail alone,” Oleksandr Kamyshin said. He also stressed that passengers are returning from abroad by rail to Ukraine. From 1 to 11 May, at least 10 thousand passengers from Europe have already returned by rail.

"In May, Ukrzaliznytsia transported 250,000 passengers, of which only 10,000 by evacuation trains, which is no more than 4%. As of yesterday, we had 177 people traveling from Pokrovsk to Lviv and 30,000 regular passengers. It means that people are returning to ordinary life and the normal functioning of the railway," explained the chairman of the Board of Ukrzaliznytsia.

It is worth mentioning that during the implementation of evacuation programs, about 3.8 million passengers from the east, south, and center of Ukraine were transported by train to the western regions and 600 thousand passengers from the west of Ukraine to neighboring countries. Ukrzaliznytsia continues to evacuate the population where it's necessary.
