That's a very impressive train interior. The extra width of the Ukrainian railway gauge was put to good use

On VIP Train to Kyiv ; from Radio Free Europe.  More interior pictures.

Since Russia invaded Ukraine on February 24, foreign leaders wishing to visit Kyiv have had to travel overland by train. They have used a luxury carriage built in 2014 to take tourists to Crimea. It was used a few times before Russian troops seized control of the peninsula. In January 2022, before the war, RFE/RL’s Ukrainian Service got a peek on board.

Ukraine's 1,520mm (4 ft 11in 27/32 in) gauge trackage is less than four inches wider than their standard trackage of 1,435mm (4 ft 8 + 1/2in).  The question would be how much width and height is allowed by their loading gauge.
