New Member Elected to FEDECRAIL: Ukraine’s “Linia 102” Enhances Cross-Border Cooperation

On Saturday, May 4th, a significant addition was made to FEDECRAIL as Ukraine’s “Linia 102” joined this esteemed European railway federation. The non-governmental organization “Linia102.UA,” committed to the enhancement of human and civil rights, has now been warmly embraced into the FEDECRAIL family. The approval of their membership marks a pivotal step towards fostering stronger cross-border and international collaborations.

Founded with a visionary aim, “Linia102.UA” focuses on strengthening economic, social, cultural, educational, and other communal interests, both within its ranks and the broader society. The organization is particularly noted for its dedication to enhancing the transport links between Ukraine and Poland, thereby not only facilitating easier and more efficient travel but also fostering closer ties between the two nations.

The main thrust of Linia 102’s activities revolves around the intensification of cross-border rail transport. This includes advocating for the establishment of new, and the enhancement of existing, border checkpoints between Ukraine and Poland. Furthermore, the organization plays a crucial role in supporting infrastructure development, such as the construction of new railway points and the modernization of outdated ones.

Moreover, “Linia 102” is pioneering efforts in railway tourism—a niche yet burgeoning field that promises to offer unique travel experiences across the picturesque landscapes of Eastern Europe. Through their initiatives, Linia 102 not only bridges geographical distances but also cultural gaps, weaving a closer relationship between the people of Poland and Ukraine.

As FEDECRAIL welcomes “Linia 102” into its fold, the future looks promising for enhanced connectivity and cultural exchange in the region, heralding a new era of railway diplomacy that underscores the power of cooperation and collective endeavor in Europe’s rail sector.
