"As a result of shelling and bombing, 3,700 buildings were destroyed and damaged. 3,400 of them are residential buildings. That is, the enemy aimed at houses," Head of the Chernihiv Regional State Administration Vyacheslav Chaus said during a briefing at the Ukraine Media Center–Ukrinform.
According to him, the losses due to the aggression have not been calculated yet. There are direct and indirect losses and the latter are still being counted. These are unearned profits, loss of technology, business shutdowns.
"The enemy also damaged roads. Currently, transport runs along a road which was to be repaired within the Great Construction project. Now we are not talking about major repairs, we conduct running repairs. After the water recedes on the Desna River, we will work on the restoration of the bridge in Chernihiv, which was bombed by Russian aircraft," Head of the Chernihiv Regional State Administration added.
In total, according to Chaus, more than 20 bridges in the region were destroyed. Eight of them have already been restored. Currently, the ninth and tenth are being fixed. In total, it will take another 4-5 months to complete the arrangement of temporary detours.
On February 24, Russian president Vladimir Putin launched a full-scale invasion of Ukraine. Russian troops shell and destroy key infrastructure facilities, residential buildings in cities, towns, and villages.
