A first fleet of 150 Russian buses arrived in the city of Managua on Sunday afternoon to improve the transportation service in the country. The caravan of buses departed from Puerto Corinto touring the departments of Chinandega and León.
Nicaragua will be receiving a second fleet of 200 new buses from the Russian Federation between the months of March and April of this year.
At the entrance to the municipality of Ciudad Sandino, the population went out onto the highway with FSLN flags to greet the passing of the white units.
Among the residents, was Ciudad Sandino’s mayor, Raymundo Flores Genet, who said that the arrival to Managua of these units means greater security for citizens, for the transfer to their jobs.
In addition, “it means greater comfort for the population and that means that our country is moving forward and that is only done by a Revolutionary Government and not with other administrations that only dedicated themselves to benefiting businessmen, forgetting about the population.” José Benito Cáceres Donaire, a resident of Ciudad Sandino said “this is thanks to the Government headed by Commander Daniel Ortega and Vice President Compañera Rosario Murillo and these are new victories we have with the Sandinista Government.”
The new buses will allow for upgrades to the collective transport fleet in León and Chinandega.
