For several years now, Russian passenger trains did not run between Russia and Ukraine, except for one transit to Chisinau. Only trains of the Ukrainian Railways and the railway administrations of the CIS countries ran. However, in connection with COVID-19, the running of these trains was also stopped.

Due to the coronavirus, the Government of the Russian Federation ordered the organization of a lump-sum export by rail of Ukrainian citizens from Russia to their homeland and Russians from Ukraine. On the day of publication of the order, Russian Railways reported that a special train for the export of Russians was agreed.
