A look at who’s building high-speed railroads in Russia

Alexander Misharin, Skorostniye Magistrali, JSC: "The Ukrainian crisis isn't the scariest period in the Russian Federation’s history. The German business community doesn't support sanctions and is staying on with high-speed rail projects. We also have plans to attract investors from Korea and Japan."

Alexander Misharin is CEO of JSC High-Speed Rail Lines (since February 6, 2013) and First Vice-President of JSC Russian Railways (since December 2012). He is a former governor of Sverdlovsk Oblast and before that was head of Sverdlovsk Railway and Russian First Deputy Minister of Transport.

JSC High-Speed Rail Lines is a subsidiary of JSC Russian Railways, which owns 75% + 1 share of the company. It undertakes innovative projects in the field of rail transport, including the design and construction of high-speed lines (HSL). Its main project to date is the Moscow-Kazan HSL link, which is being built for the FIFA World Cup 2018. The company is working in partnership with AECOM, PWC, Freshfields, and Ernst & Young.
