So far, not so much of technical information is revealed.

Photo of old single-tracked Beskyd rail tunnel in Carpatian Mountains, link in Russian. On the left is site for new double-track tunnel:



The construction of this tunnel is important, because the Mukachevo-Lviv line is part of TEN-T line 5. After completion of tunnel in 2017, traffic will be increased from 47 tpd to 100 and increased speed on line from 40 up to 60-70 kmh

What is the situation of the railways in Ukraine with regards to the civil war
going on there right now ? Are there still through trains between Crimea and
mainland Ukraine ? And with the eastern part of the country ? Is traffic
disrupted or going on as usual ? Any destructions ? Do we have to fear
permanent line closures like what happened in Abkhazia ?

Many thanks in advance for your answers !

There are still trains between Ukraine and Crimea, even some trains between mainland Russia and Crimea still run through Ukraine. However, Ukrainian border guards do not allow Russian passport holders to cross the line between Ukraine and Crimea so those trains have been shortened to just 6-8 railcars due to low demand and there is danger of closure of passenger service.
In the eastern part, traffic must be severely disrupted because a lot of infrastructure was destroyed there: bridges, overpasses, electrification, rolling stock etc. It will take months if not years to repair all the damage.

It's not a civil war, but war with Russia backed terrorists (read Russia). And yes, there are a lot of destructions caused by these terrorist. They have already blew up a number of railway bridges and railways. Ukrainian Railways manages to repair it as fast as possible and to resume the service.

Well, evidence, show that there are some fraction of locals (although, it seems to be dropping over time) in separatist forces, so it technically qualifies as civil war.

Anyway, back to topic - until mid-august most services continued through front line, as if nothing happened, with minor disruptions - the railway network in Donbass is really dense, thanks to numerous coal and metallurgy enterprises. Now, AFAIK, Lugansk are currently cut from railway service, Donetsk still have connection to northern, already liberated territories, but it works at random - if there a possibility for railway to get a train through front line, then there would be one today. Train to southern seaside cities, that were liberated earlier, are more stable at the moment, and these cities are connected to Kyiv via bypass route trough Zaporizha.
There were several attempts of sabotage of railways by separatists, but most of them were averted by intelligence forces.

Ukrainian Railways signed an agreement with ZDG TOR (TOR Transport Consultants Group - leading Polish consulting company specializing in the areas of infrastructure, railways and integrated public transport systems).
There is a great chance for Ukraine to get some financial help from EU ($23 billion for now) which can be spend for new trains, IT solutions or railway electrification.
Polish experts have a lot of experience with rail transport system modernisation (which is still in progress in Poland) so they can help with EU law, help avoid making serious mistakes and they will provide a plan for the development of railway transport in Ukraine.
ZDG TOR also hope to cooperate with Vitali Klitschko, Mayor of Kiev, on buying new trams, buses or train control system for Kiev Metro.

That's because we're watching different channels in different part of the world. And let's not to talk about politics or war in the Railway thread. It's no use

How do trains to the Donbass function currently? Do they terminate at the last Ukrainian government controlled cities or actually go through?

As far as I know all trains terminate at Konstantinovka(transit to Donetsk is unavailable), Rubezhnoye(transit to Luhansk is unavailable), Tchapline(transit to Donetsk unavailable) and Volnovakha stations(transit between Mariupol and Melitopol is available). Passenger service on all other lines are terminated.
