The Interfax-Ukraine News Agency – a company belonging to the Interfax Information Services international group – has been an information provider in the political and economic information market of Ukraine since 1992.

Kremenchuk - PJSC Kriukov Car Building Works (KCBW, Kremenchuk, Poltava region) will produce its first diesel train in 2013, KCBW Supervisory Council Chairman Volodymyr Prykhodko has told reporters.

According to him, the partners of KCBW in this project will be the world's leading companies.

"I can't name them right now. But we wouldn't be able to quickly produce a new product without these companies," he said.

At present, according to Prykhodko, the issue of the train's configuration and modification is being discussed.

The Kriukov plant, which is the CIS's only manufacturer of both passenger carriages and freight wagons, produces freight wagons (open wagons, tankers, hopper wagons, and high-sided wagons), as well as passenger carriages, bogies for freight wagons, wheel pairs, and spare parts for subway carriages, escalators, containers, and road equipment.

Its passenger carriages are produced on order for the national railways administration, Ukrzaliznytsia. Its produce is exported to over 20 countries.
