Russian Railways Suspends Ticket Sales to Ukraine Due to Time Confusion

Russian Railways temporarily suspended ticket sales for travel to Ukraine effective March 30, the company said in a statement posted on its website Thursday.

The decision was made at the request of the Ukrainian railroad authorities.

"Due to the absence of a final decision on adopting summer time in Ukraine in March 2013, Russian Railways is forced to suspend ticket sales for intercity passenger trains on routes to Ukraine, including tickets for seats in trailer and express cars, with departure dates from March 30, 2013, on," the company said.

The suspension of ticket sales was prompted by the need to adjust train schedules in both countries to accommodate Ukraine's possible switch to summer time in 2013, the statement said.
