Ukrainian Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Regional Development, Construction, Housing and Utility Services Hennadiy Zubko said this during a working visit to Donetsk region, the press service of the vice premier informed.
In June of this year, 20 thousand residents of Avdiivka and populated areas of Yasynovate district were left without gas supply due to the shelling by Russian terrorists of the main gas pipeline in the region.
According to the vice premier, in order to resolve the situation, a project for the underwater gas pipeline construction from the village of Ocheretyne in Donetsk region to Avdiivka was developed. The gas pipeline to Avdiivka is being built bypassing the temporarily occupied territory. The length of the pipeline is more than 14 km.
"The restoration of Donbas, its infrastructure, life support systems are among the most important priorities of the government. We will provide priority assistance to those who suffered as a result of hostilities," Zubko said.
