The huge explosion in Beirut left 300,000 people unsettled. The city's governor Marwan Abboud said so as quoted by AFP. The official also claimed that the damage done to the city's infrastructure amounts to 3-5 billion U.S. dollars.
Engineers and technical crew did not yet evaluate the damage, so the actual figures are not revealed so far.
As of now, there is no information about Ukrainian citizens who were injured or killed in the explosion in Beirut, Lebanon. This was reported by the press service of the Ukraine's Cabinet of Ministers, citing Prime Minister Denys Shmygal.
"A terrible tragedy in Beirut. My condolences to all those who suffered and lost relatives and friends. Now, according to Ukraine's embassy in Lebanon, there is no information about injured Ukrainians. We are closely monitoring the situation," the prime minister's press service said.
As we reported earlier, the explosion thundered in Beirut on August 4. It emitted an enormous shockwave which destroyed much of the city's civilian and governmental infrastructure and reached Cyprus.
