By the time the crisis in Ukraine began, the country’s rail system was struggling to cope.
It was a massive undertaking that took months to plan and a decade to build.
Railway workers had to be trained to cope with a variety of security risks, and train managers were told to focus on the most immediate threats, like derailments and attacks on trains.
But in the early months of the crisis, the train management training didn’t seem to be working.
It failed to prepare train drivers to act as an emergency response team to the chaos, and the train operators, who were mostly inexperienced, didn’t have the skills to handle the situation, according to the government.
The government decided to replace the train managers with experienced personnel, but there was a catch.
In order to get trained, they would have to take on extra work and responsibilities that were beyond their skill set.
As a result, more than half of train operators have had to move from their regular jobs, and a further 20% of train managers have had their jobs eliminated.
A large number of these positions have been at the railway companies, which are still reeling from the economic downturn.
The government has made it harder for railway operators to get the new training, and has imposed stricter restrictions on who can take part.
At the moment, the government is trying to shift responsibility to train operators.
However, many train operators say that the train manager position isn’t really theirs.
The train operators themselves have also said they don’t feel they should have to change jobs to be ready for the crisis.
The train managers who are being moved to train management roles have also been given new responsibilities.
In the past, train operators had been responsible for ensuring safety at the tracks, and managing the crowding in the railway stations, but these responsibilities have been transferred to train managers.
The move is causing a major headache for railway companies.
According to the Association of Russian Railways (RR), train managers now have to manage a train that is about to enter a station and that is already congested, while railway workers are not in a position to control crowding at stations.
It has also been suggested that train operators could be given the option of working as train security guards.
But for many train drivers, the job has become a burden and it is not their passion that worries them most, but the risk of getting fired if they go back to their regular job.
A train driver in central Russia’s Khabarovsk region, who asked to remain anonymous, said: “If we don’t change our jobs, we won’t be able to stay at the job, but if we lose our jobs we won�t be able get a job.
We would have nothing to eat or anything.
It would be better to take a job as a security guard than to go back.”
