    Preparing for winter near the frontline is a major challenge that the Government is actively working on. This was announced by Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal during an offsite Government meeting in Donetsk region.

    “In many communities, wood is the main means of heating the premises. Therefore, the Ministry of Environmental Protection and Natural Resources is instructed to develop a regulatory act that will give the green light for independent wood harvesting by residents of settlements. This procedure must be clearly regulated so that people can harvest enough firewood without harming our forests,” the Prime Minister stressed.

    Also, the Ministry of Energy, the Ministry of Economy, the Ministry of Finance, together with the Deputy Prime Minister – Minister for Reintegration of the Temporarily Occupied Territories, were instructed to urgently develop a mechanism for the distribution of humanitarian aid in the form of liquefied gas for the needs of household consumers. In particular, in Donetsk region.

    As Denys Shmyhal noted, the situation with water supply in Donetsk region was critical in the context of a full-scale war. He instructed the Ministry of Environmental Protection and Natural Resources to develop an algorithm for implementing the pilot project as soon as possible. The aim is to simplify the construction of artesian and other types of wells as much as possible.

    As of today, there are already a thousand wells in Donetsk region that supply water to 65% of the population. Another 50 wells are planned to be installed in the near future.
