“95% of roads are no longer usable and do not meet the standards. As of 2017, 85 thousald kilometers of roads, including 25 thousand kilometers of principal roads, were damaged by potholes. This year we have already transferred UAH 2 billion for patching repairs and liquidated potholes on 6 thousand kilometers of roads,” Omelian said.
