"It is critical for us that a new financial plan is adopted. It already stipulates railroad fare increase starting from June. We want it to be about 20-25 percent," Wasilewski said.
The revised financial plan will be considered by the members of the board of Ukrzaliznytsia next week. He also noted that the increase in railroad fare since June 1 would generate additional 7 billion hryvnia.
