“We need extra 25,000 beds at the sports complex, exhibit halls and other facilities equipped with everything necessary, without the need in renovations, with heat, where we will be able to admit people. The issue ‘if they would be required’ is not discussed. Firstly, it is necessary to start the preparation for extra beds. Without discussions,” Ukraine’s PM Denys Shmygal underlined.
The PM added that the heads of the regional state administrations should do these things immediately.
“It is an urgent order. We need to move very quickly and promptly,” he noted.
