The Cabinet of Ministers appointed Anton Mishyn as a member of the board of Ukrzaliznytsia. Prior to his appointment, he worked at the state rail transport company as the Director of Economics and Finance, the UZ press service reported.

Before Ukrzaliznytsia, Mishyn also worked as an executive and financial director at Rinat Akhmetov's companies DTEK Renewables, DTEK Energo, and the Yenakiyevo Metallurgical Plant.

The new member of the board is tasked with bringing UZ to the break-even level, optimizing financial processes, and continuing work on reducing expenses, commented Yevhen Liashchenko, chairman of the board of Ukrzaliznytsia.

Mishyn will also develop relations with international financial partners.
