Bird's-eye view of "Russian world" fallout in Ukraine

Ukrinform
Forty-nine days into the full-scale invasion of Ukraine by Russian troops. The enemy has been destroying mostly civilian infrastructure and massively killing civilians.

The pictures showing the scale of destruction are impressive, especially if taken from drones. They allow fully revealing what the notorious "Russian world" has brought to Ukraine.

We offer our audience to review a selection of such photos taken in different parts of Ukraine.

There you can see settlements once full of life, such as Irpin, Hostomel, Borodyanka, Chernihiv, villages in Kyiv and Chernihiv regions. Now there’s scorched earth, huge craters, mutilated iron, bizarrely curved plastic shapes instead of windows through which people could see the world outside, tonnes of construction materials now turned into the rubble of what once used to be a peaceful life.

Prime Minister Denys Schmyhal said that Ukraine's U-24 Reconstruction Plan will be implemented in three phases. The first is already taking place – destroyed facilities are being rebuilt temporarily, quickly and expeditiously. The second stage is rapid reconstruction immediately after the end of hostilities. The third stage involves full-fledged renovation of Ukrainian cities, towns, buildings, infrastructure, and the country as a whole. It will be the most costly and time-consuming part, but the authorities plan to implement it apace.
