More than 20,000 Ukrainians have already received money under the eVidnovlennia (eRecovery) programme to repair damaged housing. This was announced by Oleksandr Kubrakov, Deputy Prime Minister for Restoration of Ukraine and Minister for Communities, Territories and Infrastructure Development.
According to him, the total amount of payments is more than one and a half billion hryvnias. Most of the recipients are residents of Kharkiv, Kyiv, Donetsk, Kherson and Chernihiv regions. In total, more than 55,000 applications have been submitted under this programme.
“We are working together with local authorities to speed up the review of applications by local commissions, and we need to increase the intensity despite the difficulties.
The average payment is UAH 78,000 and includes both the purchase of construction materials and payment for construction services,” the official said.
All shops and contractors participating in the programme are listed on the eVidnovlennia website.
It is important that most of the companies are small local businesses. Anyone can also join the programme by submitting an application on the website.
“We strive to digitalise every step we take. On the one hand, this significantly reduces corruption risks and protects against the human factor, and on the other hand, it adds convenience and security to the extent possible. We are moving in the same direction with the launch of compensation for destroyed homes. Already this month, Ukrainians whose homes were destroyed as a result of the russian attack will be able to buy a new apartment or house,” said Oleksandr Kubrakov.
