Warsaw will hand over ten older metro trains to Kiev. We signed a letter of intent with the mayor of Kiev, Vitaly Klitschko, informed the mayor of Warsaw, Rafał Trzaskowski, who visited the Ukrainian capital on Wednesday. The trains will serve as a source of repair parts.

Trzaskowski to Kiev set off on Wednesday with local government officials with whom he creates the Pact of Free Cities, i.e. the mayor of Prague Zdenek Hrib, the mayor of Budapest Gergely Karascony and the mayor of Bratislava Matusz Valla.

– This is an important support for our friends from Kiev. In Warsaw, the delivered trains are already being gradually withdrawn from use by us. In Kiev, where this model is still operating, they will be a valuable help – if only as a source of parts for repairs – stressed Trzaskowski.

According to the mayor of Warsaw, it is “solidarity of local governments in action”. – From the beginning of the Russian aggression, we have been supporting our Ukrainian friends – also as the Free Cities Pact – he stressed.

The Free Cities Pact was established by local government officials from the capitals of the Visegrad Group at the end of 2019.
