According to him, there are no problems with the export of products to Russia the enterprise does not. At the same time, the factory carries out orders for Russian companies, including Russian Railways.

Public Joint Stock Company "Luganskteplovoz" is in Lugansk, and is engaged in production of locomotives. It is the largest in Eastern Europe, a manufacturer of draft rolling stock for railways. In 2011, the Bryansk Engineering Plant, which is part of the corporation "Transmashholding", took over 76% stake "Luganskteplovoz".
In 2015 the company re-registered on the territory under the control of Ukraine Luhansk region - in Severodonetsk. At the same time the management of "Transmashholding" noted that the company had problems with the export of products related to the checkpoint regime introduced by Ukraine in respect of the goods of LNR and DNR.
Luganskteplovoz from LNR produce locomotives and spare parts for Russian customers without problems. Considering, that Ukraine not long ago destroy similar plant in Zaporozhye and sold its equipment for scrap metal, this is a really big contrast. It seems it will not last long, when industrial base in DNR, LNR will be the only industrial base left on the territory of the Ukraine, if we not count Crimea as part of ex-Ukraine.
