I know this is not in topic of this thread, but it seems very interesting. Stadler and Belkommunmarsh introduced new tram design for Minsk. Link in Russian:

So, it's time for some updates

1. Main much awaited event - opening of Malinaŭka station is foreseen to happen already next week. first trial was hold on May 23th, you can watch a video here.

Some photos:







The name "Malinaŭka" is referred to the name of former village which situated here. the idea of the interior is about natural theme, so drawings of raspberry bushes(rather unstylish as for me) are put on the wall because "Malinaŭka" can be translated in English as "Raspberry village", and some birds were installed on the "column-trees"



it's stated that the birds will chirrup on the station during peak hours. we should just wait a bit and see(or, corectly, listen to) whether it's true)

The idea of the station is close to Hrušaŭka ("Pear village") which hosts a lot of metal pear at it
more photos and information can be found here.

2. New deadline for the 3rd line is announced - late 2017 - early 2018( sourse). meanwhile new schemes appeared in the trains - with first 4 stations U/C and Malinaŭka in service.

3. Closer to the end of 2014 Minsk metro will get new belarusian-ukranian train assembled in Gomel, Belarus with components and assistance from ukranian "Kriukov car building works" (their official traslatation ). only one of such will be produced so far as it will be only in trial service. It may look like ordinary trains by "Kriukov car building works" operating in Kiev metro


more information here

4. Stadler, producer of trains for Minsk City Lines(S-bahn-like system), also declared its willingness to produce trains for Minsk metro. Since Standler builds a factory in Belarus and probably the main supplier of trains for belarusian railways, it's very likely that this plan gos true(if Stadler actually want to). more information onBelta

5. And since I've already mentioned City Lines - some affrods are done to include CL in the ordinary network of urban transport - during Hockey championship trains were coming with 10-15 min frequency, which makes them close to normal trasport service. Also 3, 5, 10, 20 and 30-days tickets for all kind of transport including CL are now available. price for 3days ticket for all minsk public transport is $6,5, for 30days - $40. more information and fares can be found here

It's official!

Minsk’s growing subway system has finally borne witness to its newest station, at the southwest end of Line 1 – 1.8 km past the previous terminus at Petrovshchina. Malinovka station will serve the neighborhood of the same name, a large mikrorayon that was largely developed in the 1980s and 1990s. With that, works on Line 1 are complete, and focus will shift to the already under-construction Line 3, providing a new crosstown route on a north-south axis through the capital.

Some had anticipated that the metro would wait until the next major holiday (7 July 2014, the 70th anniversary of liberation of Minsk from fascist occupiers), but they went ahead and opened the station on a regular weekday afternoon.

The first train left today, 3 June 2014, at 13:02 local time (6:02 am NY time; 11:02 am London time).

The most impatient passengers started gathering an hour before the station opened. At that time in the western vestibule of the station there was an official ceremony attended by Belarus PM Mikhail Myasnikovich, city council chairman (mayor) Nikolai Ladutko, as well as other dignitaries.









After the speeches concluded, the politicians along with the metro construction workers boarded the train to ride from Malinovka to Petrovshchina. The platform featured one of five recently acquired trains.


(Note: buffalo mascot left over from the world hockey championship that concluded last month)






“Malinawka” – Belarussian spelling.























Exactly at 3:00 pm the doors opened and dozens of passengers filed into the vestibule. They did not hurry onto the first train, which left for Petrovschina right away, but took the time to walk along the platform, take selfies in front of the station and call friends.













Malinovka is now the 29th station in the subway and the 15th on the Moskovskaya Line (Line 1). The section from Petrovschina to the new station turned out to be the most challenging during the entire history of the system. The construction workers heroically digged through the soil with shovels and battled with waterfalls in the tunnels. In the most difficult days, despite three shifts of work, workers progressed by only 1.5 meters.

Now workers are working on cosmetic works in the adjoining property. Near the entrance to the station at Dzerzhinsky Avenue and Yana Chechota Street, they are installing sidewalk bricks and building a stairway.







The first sector of line 3 is not expected to open until end of 2017 or start of 2018. The new onboard maps do not feature projected extensions on the existing lines like they used to, although another station to the southwest (Shchemyslitsa) is proposed.

Поздравляю всех минчан и белорусов с открытием, пожалуй, одной из самых красивейших станций метрополитена!

Link in Russian, Minsk city hall is in talks with Stadler about constructing new metro trains for city. If it will proceed as it planned, the first trains will begin testing in two or three years time:
http://saroavto2.blogspot.ru/2014/07/stadler.html

Some technical information - the new trains should be quiet, cold, made of alluminium, partially automatic, have a spacious driver cab and have access to all carriages

probably misunderstood the question

no information about belarusian specification of the train and whether there will be a separate company for its production or some collaboration of Krukov car building works (link above) and Gomel VSZ (carrige-building plant)

It doesn`t really matters. Minsk and Kyiv metros are fully compatible, and production are likely either to be held in either Krukov or in Gomel, in form of KD
