President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky stated that he was looking for an opportunity to attract three billion dollars in order to get all bridges in Ukraine fixed. He said this during a press conference that was broadcasted by 112 Ukraine TV channel.
"Another big program is planned, I am now looking for funds in order to get implemented, and it is my responsibility to find another three billion dollars - these are all the bridges of our country," he said.
Zelensky reminded that the Ukrainian government had launched the construction of a bridge across the Dnipro river in Zaporizhia.
“It will be one of the largest bridges in the history of our country. And we will all be proud of it too. We need three billion dollars for the implementation of the Big Bridges program. This is a beautiful, territorially complex country, but we love it and we want to build all bridges. If we take the Ivano-Frankivsk region as an example, there are 1900 bridges and footbridges,” the president added.
As we reported earlier, during his press conference, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky said that the signature of a memorandum between Ukraine and the IMF would take place in May.
