A passenger train has left Ukraine's capital, Kyiv, for the recently recaptured city of Kherson, for the first time in recent months.
Deputy Head of the Office of the President Kyrylo Tymoshenko said this in a post on Telegram, Ukrinform reports.
"The first train left for Kherson! This is our victory train! There are 200 passengers in the carriages who bought tickets 'to victory' as part of the joint initiative by Ukrzaliznytsia and UNITED24", the post reads.
Tymoshenko clarified that the train to Kherson would depart from Kyiv on even numbered days and return from Kherson on odd numbered days.
"Just like this train, we will return everything for a normal life to Kherson!" he said, thanking everyone who is currently working to ensure that the city receives everything it needs.
