The flood-affected regions in western Ukraine need additional UAH 2 billion to eliminate the effects of bad weather.
Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal stated this during an hour of questions to the government in the Verkhovna Rada, an Ukrinform correspondent reported.
"More than UAH 750 million [already allocated funds] is not the final amount that the government will direct on restoring the structure of the regions. We have received preliminary estimates from our responsible authorities on the need of additional UAH 2 billion to overcome the consequences of the disaster. These are preliminary estimates from regional state administrations,” Shmyhal said.
As Ukrinform reported, heavy rains on June 22-24 caused floods in Ivano-Frankivsk, Chernivtsi, Lviv, and Ternopil regions. Three people were killed in floods and one more went missing. Hundreds of kilometers of roads, dozens of bridges were destroyed, and hundreds of people were resettled.
The Cabinet of Ministers allocated almost UAH 700 million for the needs of the regions to eliminate the consequences of the natural disaster.
