The longer the distance that separates Ukraine from a state—object of international passenger communication, the higher is the administrative rank of the city-terminus of this communication. In 2007, 139 international passenger trains and 76 direct carriages ran through the country. Owing to the effect of historical inertia, Ukrainian cities are predominantly connected by international passenger service with Russian cities, especially with Moscow.
