The program for reconstruction and construction of regional airports in Ukraine will cover a total of 16 cities.

"The program for the development of regional airports, in particular in Uzhgorod, Chernivtsi, Poltava and a total of 16 cities in Ukraine [will be carried out]," President Volodymyr Zelensky said during a speech at the All-Ukrainian Forum "Ukraine 30. Infrastructure", an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

He reminded, in particular, that the reconstruction of an international airport in the city of Dnipro had recently begun, and that an international airport was planned to be built in Zakarpattia region - between Uzhgorod and Mukachevo.

The President also informed that a new civilian airport would be built in Donbas. "A location between Luhansk and Donetsk regions will be determined, and this year we will definitely start to design a new airport for these two regions," Zelensky said.

He added that the airport would be built to handle the civilians.

The Mariupol Airport currently cannot be used to provide air services in the region as it is dangerous, Zelensky noted.

As reported, this year it is planned to allocate UAH 2.4 billion from the state budget for the development of regional airports, of which UAH 1.4 billion will be spent on the construction of a new airfield in Dnipro city, UAH 1 billion - on the construction of airports in Rivne, Kherson and Vinnytsia cities. In addition, another UAH 30 million has been allocated for the design of a new airport in Zakarpattia region.
