To do so, we have everything - material resources in the form of material reserves of all levels and performers of restoration work that will be provided by the State Emergency Service of Ukraine," Filashkin said.

He said the main key to the successful solution of all tasks was, first and foremost, the unconditional implementation of planned measures for restoration work and strict compliance with schedules.
