The project will be completed next year, Prime Minister noted. - From the western border to Vinnytsia and the road section from Vinnytsia to Uman will be built by the end of the year. I want to see who conducts road repairs work and where is the problem. I emphasize: funding is provided and tenders are held. The issues on the table are contractors and quality execution of works".
