UAH 8.8 bln needed to rebuild infrastructure in Luhansk region
The general plan for the reconstruction of infrastructure of Luhansk region includes 7,800 facilities whose rebuilding requires UAH 8.8 billion, Luhansk regional military civilian administration head Heorhiy Tuka said.
"The general plan for rebuilding infrastructure in Luhansk region covers 7,800 facilities. These are 6,719 destroyed and damaged residential houses, which need to be either rebuilt or their sum should be compensated to people. It also includes 418 roads and 32 bridges, 170 water supply and sewerage facilities, 94 hospitals and 112 secondary schools and pre-school educational institutions," Tuka told the a regional TV channel, the Luhansk administration's press service reported.
In his words, all these measures require UAH 8.8 billion, which is an exorbitant sum for the regional budget.
"I hope that we'll be able to implement if not all 100%, but at least 70% of the plan next year. The only thing that can stop us is new escalation of hostilities and a lack of our own capacities," Tuka said.
