Minister for Communities and Territories Development of Ukraine Oleksii Chernyshov during a briefing at the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine noted that the Presidential Great Construction program is underway and will be implemented within the specified time and in full amount. According to the official, it includes almost 380 objects - schools, kindergartens, sports facilities and more.
“In particular, almost UAH 100 billion is planned for the construction of roads, and I assure we will see all those. We can see the great construction that is currently underway across the country, and these motor roads, as we say, will assemble the country and make the country more accessible to citizens and guests of the state,” said Oleksii Chernyshov.
According to the Minister, due to the implementation of the Great Construction projects, about 180 thousand citizens were attracted to the construction of roads and 80 thousand jobs were created for the implementation of socio-economic infrastructure projects.
