restoration of Luhansk region and the rest of the funds - for Donetsk region.
Hennadii Zubko noted that monitoring
of the appropriate use of these funds must be carried by the communities that
reside in the areas with damaged infrastructure, social facilities and life
“Each community has
to determine independently the objects that need the funds to be directed and
those to be restored in the first place,” the Vice Premier stressed. He added
the allotted funding must be applied with maximum efficiency to cover the needs
of people and residential areas of Donetsk and Luhansk regions.
