Heads of Moscow, Saint Petersburg, Yekaterinburg, Samara, Nizhniy Novgorod, Novosibirsk, Tashkent, Kyiv, Kharkov, and Minsk subways talked about the performance and safety of subways and about their development potential.

According to Head of Metro International Association Council, head of Moscow subway Ivan Besedin, it will be impossible to expand the streets of Yekaterinburg and create special lanes for public transport. This is why the subway seems like the best solution to traffic problems.
