Railway industry is of major importance for Ukraine’s economics, as no other transport in the country is able to generate such volumes of freight and passenger flows. Railway provides 65% of transport work in the general structure of freight transportation by all modes of transport and more than 35% of passenger traffic in the general structure of transportation work. In terms of freight traffic, Ukrzaliznytsia JSC ranks fourth on the Eurasian continent, right after the railways of China, Russia and India.

The challenges accumulated during recent decades require a long-awaited reform aimed at reorganizing Ukrzaliznytsia, liberalizing the transportation market, optimizing tariff policy and attracting investment. However, even before the launch of the reform, Ukrzaliznytsia creates conditions for private investors by preparing the station complexes for concession and sale of non-core assets.


In the process of work, we constantly monitor the railway legislation, which allows us to quickly apply the new rules in the project work and to draw conclusions for the business community on the consequences of regulatory changes in the industry. As a legal partner of the Logistics Committee of the European Business Association in Ukraine, AGRECA provides support to the private sector in relations with government agencies and natural monopolies in the field of railway transport. Our experts have prepared a number of initiatives for the draft Law “On Railway Transport” and bylaws.

We have experience in supporting investment projects involving large-scale construction of port railway infrastructure and the development of public railway transport. Our lawyers were involved in World Bank’s projects to introduce concessions for passenger stations in 8 cities of Ukraine.
