Ukrainian railways have offered symbolic tickets to the public as a celebration of the retaking of the city of Kherson.
The tickets are available from Kyiv to Kherson, and also to other Ukrainian cities still under Russian control, with a promise that they will be valid for use once the cities have been liberated.
The railway operator said on telegram messaging apps: “Today you can order tickets for the first three trains from Kyiv to five cities: already de-occupied Kherson, as well as Mariupol, Donetsk, Luhansk and Simferopol.”
“The ticket can be purchased, kept as a symbol of faith in the Armed Forces and the liberation of Ukraine from the occupiers. As soon as traffic is restored, railway officials will send a message with the date and location.”
Ticket prices started at 1,000 hryvnias, around £23.
