New heavy snow storm plays havoc with Ukrainian roads

Feb 15, 2010 (Interfax) A new heavy snowfall in Ukraine brought dozens of trains to a halt and blocked major roadways, the Interfax news agency reported. The worst snowstorms were reported in the southern Odessa, Luhansk, and Mykolaiv provinces, where accumulated snowfall reportedly exceeded 30 centimetres in some areas. Temperatures as low as minus 10 Celsius were complicating the rail and road clearance effort, the Transportation Ministry said.
