The Government has already allocated nearly UAH 2.5 billion for water supplies to the South of Ukraine. This was announced by Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal at a meeting of the Cabinet of Ministers on 13 June.
“We are starting the construction of new water mains, assessing the damage and drawing up a list of affected communities, ensuring the supply of drinking water, preparing decisions on payments and compensation to affected Ukrainians,” the Prime Minister said.
In order to achieve these goals, the Cabinet of Ministers issued a resolution requiring the local authorities of Kherson region to organise the inspection of damaged buildings and structures.
“Special commissions and sufficient staff must be set up to quickly inspect the destruction, and calculations must be made on the appropriate amount of compensation to restore people’s homes,” the Prime Minister stressed.
Earlier, the Prime Minister said that 30 settlements in the Kherson region remained flooded as a result of the russian terrorist attack on the Kakhovka hydroelectric power plant.
