DNR Mintrans sez New Donetsk-Moscow Bus Route Would Go Via Rostov-on-Don

00 Donetsk bus station. DNR. 08.04.15


Today, the DNR Ministry of Transport (Mintrans) reported that a new Donetsk-Moscow bus-route would stage via Rostov-on-Don {Donetsk to Rostov is 200 kilometres (125 miles) on Motorway M23 (3 hours); Rostov to Moscow is 1,080 kilometres (672 miles) on Motorway M4 (13 hours): editor}. The Mintrans stated, “On 6 April, we opened a new bus-route linking Donetsk and Moscow via Rostov-on-Don. The bus departs daily from the Kryty Rynok bus station at 07.00. The cost of a Donetsk-Rostov one-way is 250 Grivnya (570 Roubles. 66 Renminbi. 660 INR. 10.75 USD. 13.50 CAD. 14 AUD. 10 Euros. 7.25 UK Pounds), to go to Moscow from Donetsk costs 750 Grivnya (1,710 Roubles. 198 Renminbi. 1,980 INR. 32.25 USD. 40.50 CAD. 42 AUD. 30 Euros. 21.75 UK Pounds). Phone numbers to make reservations are on the official DNR Mintrans website”.

NB: The above forex rates are the official ones. The grivnya is actually only half the value of that on most internal markets. That is, the currency is rapidly losing its purchasing power, as the empty shop shelves, intermittent power outages, and chronic arrears in pay testify.

DAN Donetsk News Agency



This means that the DNR has control over crossing points with the Russian Federation. As long as that is true, the junta can’t blockade them. As bad as the situation in the Republics is, the situation in Banderstan is even worse. It’s simply that the junta imposed censorship and the Western press plays along with them. THEY LIE. Should you believe them? Well… that’s up to YOU…
