Unrest in Ukraine led to a breakdown in terms of supplies of equipment for the Moscow metroDecember 7, 2015
Deliveries of certain equipment for the construction of the Moscow metro began to fail as a result of the difficult situation in Ukraine, Marat Khusnullin, deputy mayor for construction and urban planning, told reporters.
He clarified that tubing began to arrive from Dnepropetrovsk intermittently. “And despite the fact that we already have a paid contract worth 800 million rubles, which is a big amount for Ukraine,” said Khusnullin.
According to him, at present, the capital authorities are considering the possibility of concluding supply contracts with other suppliers.But, be that as it may, reorientation will lead to a loss of two to three months, ”the official said.
In Ukraine, the other day there was a change of power. Viktor Yanukovych, the Ukrainian president, was dismissed by the Verkhovna Rada, which also amended the constitution, and entrusted presidential powers to Oleksandr Turchynov, the speaker. Presidential elections are scheduled for May 25th. Also, the Verkhovna Rada approved the composition of the government of people's trust.
Viktor Yanukovych himself declares that he is currently legally elected head of state, which currently shows signs of a coup. Moscow on this issue believes that the legitimacy of the decisions adopted by the Verkhovna Rada raises some groundless doubts.
