UAH 900 billion is required to restore the roads destroyed during the Russian-Ukrainian war.
Andrii Ivko, first deputy head at Ukraine’s State Road Agency Ukravtodor, said this during a nationwide television marathon, Ukrinform reports.
“Currently, 900 billion hryvnias are needed to restore the roads. It will take two to four years to restore the road infrastructure. We believe that it would be right to attract frozen Russian funds for this restoration,” Ivko said.
He also said that 24,000 kilometers of roads and 302 artificial structures, including bridges and overpasses, had been completely destroyed in Ukraine.
“But we are working on restoration every day. Some 930 kilometers of roads have already been cleared and 40 temporary structures and detours have been created,” Ivko said.
On February 24, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced a full-scale invasion of Ukraine. Russian troops are destroying infrastructure and residential areas of Ukrainian cities, towns and villages using artillery, multiple rocket launchers and ballistic missiles.
