Russian businessman Stanislav Gamzalov in recent days finalized a deal to purchase more than a 10 percent share in Kriukov Railway Car Plant through an Austria-based holding company. The deal comes ahead of a state purchase program for high-speed trains from Ukraine’s passenger train car monopolist and a possible expansion into the Russian market.
