Getting The Grain Out Of Ukraine

Ukraine is known as the “breadbasket of Europe” and is one of the top grain exporters, crucial to providing nourishment & preventing famine in many other parts of the world. Due to the unprovoked invasion by Russia, there are currently 20 million tonnes of grain languishing in Ukrainian storage facilities. It needs to urgently get out to the world market, in order to increase the supply that will then lead to price reductions.

The railway/railroad must now take on an essential role in bringing Ukrainian agricultural goods via neighbouring EU countries to Europe and the rest of the world.
This is why the Support Ukraine Rail Task Force urges all rail market players both in Europe & around the world to participate in the EU Commission’s new “Solidarity Lanes” initiative with measures to facilitate the export of Ukrainian agricultural products.

Spendenaufruf: Unterstützen Sie die Eisenbahnhelden in dieser Krise


Die Eisenbahn ist in dieser Krise die Lebensader für Flüchtlinge, Medikamente und andere humanitäre Hilfe. Bereits mehr als 100 EisenbahnerInnen sind bei ihrem Einsatz für die Aufrechterhaltung des Bahnbetriebs gestorben. Darüber hinaus wurde in der vergangenen Woche berichtet, dass Russland seine Angriffe auf die Eisenbahn verstärkt und damit die Anbindung der Ukraine an die Außenwelt ins Visier nimmt – ein weiteres Beispiel dafür, wie gefährdet der Eisenbahnsektor ist!

Deshalb bieten wir Ihnen jetzt die Möglichkeit, die Eisenbahnhelden in dieser Krise direkt zu unterstützen.
Dabei arbeiten wir zusammen mit der globalen Wohltätigkeitsorganisation United Way (unitedway.org), ihrem deutschen Zweig PHINEO (phineo.org) und dessen Ukraine-Programm WE-AID (we-aid.org).

Weitere Informationen zu den Spendenmöglichkeiten finden Sie in der Pressemitteilung, indem Sie auf den folgenden Link klicken.

Dieser Spendenaufruf wurde von der Multinational Support Ukraine Rail Task Force veröffentlicht, einer Partnerschaft von führenden Vertretern der weltweiten Eisenbahnindustrie unter dem Vorsitz von Jolene Molitoris, der ehemaligen Generaldirektorin der US-Eisenbahnbehörde Federal Rail Administration.

(United States) Call for donations: support Ukraine’s Rail Heroes in this crisis

The Ukraine Railroad is the lifeline for refugees, medicine, food and other humanitarian aid. Already more than 100 rail workers have died keeping the railroad running. Earlier this week, Russia bombed five railroad stations in central and western Ukraine, killing people and causing disruption - another example of how vulnerable this life-saving rail service is!

This is why we are now offering the chance to directly support all of the railway heroes! We are working together with the global charitable organisation United Way (unitedway.org), its German branch PHINEO (phineo.org/en) and its Ukraine program WE-AID to provide targeted help to the Ukrainian Railroad.

Further information on how to donate can be found in the press release by clicking on the link below.

This call for donations has been issued by the Multinational Support Ukraine Rail Task Force, a partnership of leaders from the worldwide rail industry chaired by Jolene Molitoris, former US Federal Railroad Administrator.
