Railway passenger traffic between Romania and Ukraine was recently opened after several years of interruption of train traffic between the two countries.

Transport is provided by the Ukrainian national railway company and is carried out by broad gauge railway built in the 1950s that can only be used by Ukraine, who owns the trains and locomotives suitable for such a gauge.
