Before the full-scale war, the deputy head of the President's Office, Kyrylo Tymoshenko, was one of the curators of the "Great Construction" program. At that time, his area of responsibility was the maintenance of projects for the repair and construction of roads, bridges, the construction of schools and medical infrastructure.
Since the full-scale invasion of Russia on the territory of Ukraine and as a result of its terrorist attacks, priorities and tasks have changed radically. The infrastructure, which was restored and modernized earlier, is damaged and in some places completely destroyed. The OP's task is to quickly restore it and rebuild housing so that Ukrainians can return from abroad. According to Tymoshenko, there are many projects that the state cannot currently finance: "We accept any kind of financing from partners. We would do at least five objects or ten, direct financing of communities, manufacturing abroad. That is, anything, just to start."
During the 225 days of the full-scale war, 94,596 destroyed infrastructure facilities were recorded in various regions of Ukraine.
Of them, there are more than 25,000 objects in Kyiv region, more than 20,000 in Donetsk region, and more than 9,000 objects in Kharkiv region. In particular, more than 74,000 residential buildings were destroyed. And new targets are being added every day as Russian shelling continues.
Recently, speaking online at the conference "Ukraine during the war. Economy. Security. Energy. Recovery Prospects", in Warsaw, Kyrylo Tymoshenko noted:
"Ukraine is counting on the support of international partners, including the expert environment, in the restoration of housing and social infrastructure destroyed as a result of the Russian invasion. Unfortunately, Ukraine will not have enough financial resources to restore such a large amount of destroyed infrastructure. It will take us many years to rebuild thousands of schools, kindergartens, hospitals, energy and transport infrastructure facilities."
Despite the ongoing hostilities, the state cannot afford to delay the reconstruction of housing in the liberated territories, because not all people are ready to leave their homes, it is impossible to spend the winter in the destroyed ones. Currently, for the rapid reconstruction of critically needed infrastructure, by order of the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyi and the head of the Office of the Head of State Andriy Yermak, the Fast Recovery Plan has been put into effect, which includes more than 38,000 specific objects with addresses, Tymoshenko noted in a conversation with journalists.
How in the conditions of constant attacks on public and critical infrastructure, Ukraine prepares for a difficult winter and how those citizens who have lost their homes will spend the winter - in an interview with the deputy head of the Office of the President Kyryl Tymoshenko.
Fixing the destruction, finding financing, attracting international donors, business contractors and the independent public sector, rebuilding and updating buildings in compliance with modern standards and using the latest technologies — all this is the plan of real actions of the League of Renewal of Ukraine. More than 10,000 objects affected by Russia's large-scale armed invasion of Ukraine have already been plotted on the HUB ONOVA GIS interactive map.
The work continues, we are creating the future of Ukraine together.
