Fast InterCity trains will start running next year between Cherkasy and Kyiv, rendering rail travel as fast car travel on the 190-km route.

After electrification of a final 30-km section in a 145-year old rail line, high-speed trains will connect the regional capital with the national capital in 2h30 min, the same time as by car, Kirill Tymoshenko, deputy presidential chief of staff, wrote Friday on Facebook.
