As part of the criminal proceedings, employees of the agency and specialists of Ukraine's state rail operator Ukrzaliznytsia established the ownership of 434 railcars to Russian companies and their actual location.

Proceeds from the commercial use of the railcars will be used for the needs of the Ukrainian Armed Forces.
