Before the invasion in 2022, annual passenger flow was about 150 million (out of which 20 million were long-distance trips), and cargo flow was over 300 million tonnes.

In 2022 cargo flow decreased by over 52% to 150 million tonnes. In 2022 there were 16.9 million long-distance passenger trips. Another 4 million passengers were evacuated. About 2 million passengers crossed the EU border.

Due to the war, the part of the railway network occupied by the Russian forces is currently disconnected from the Ukrainian railway system.
