The company will advise and support the Ukrainian railways in business and engineering matters.
Germany's national railway operator, Deutsche Bahn, says it does not plan to take over Ukraine's Ukrzaliznytsia for management. "DB Engineering & Consulting, a consulting company within Deutsche Bahn that works on projects in the areas of infrastructure, mobility and transport, will advise and support Ukrzaliznytsia in business and engineering matters," the German company said in a response to an inquiry from Deutsche Welle.
According to the German side, this is precisely what is said in the "preliminary deal," signed on January 22 in Davos during the World Economic Forum.
As UNIAN reported
earlier, Prime Minister of Ukraine Oleksiy Honcharuk said that the government
wanted to transfer Ukrzaliznytsia to Deutsche Bahn for management for 10 years.
