JSC Ukrzaliznytsia may incur losses in the amount between UAH 6 and 10 billion in the first half of 2020, according to acting Board Chairman of Ukrzaliznytsia Željko Marček.

"In March 2020, Ukrzaliznytsia will receive UAH 1.2-1.4 billion less. According to our estimates, the company will have a net loss totaling UAH 6 to 10 billion in the first half of 2020. We have not had such results since 2015,” he said, Ukrzaliznytsia’s Magistral media center reported.

According to him, such losses are due to the suspension of passenger rail transportation, as well as a decrease in production volumes and temporary shutdown of shipping companies.
