"The agreement between Ukrzaliznytsia and General Electric worth $1 billion will lead to modernization and development of the railroads. But the most important thing is that the conclusion of the framework agreement will guarantee the long-term mutually beneficial cooperation between Kyiv and Washington.
"This is one of the signals showing that Ukraine is moving forward. This is a convincing proof that we are back on the track of economic growth, that we are starting to modernize the infrastructure, that Ukraine is a reliable partner. This is the largest deal in many years," the president said in a statement.
