“As of today, the losses caused by destruction of infrastructure in ATO area exceed $3 bln,” Andrei Pivovarsky, the Minister of Infrastructure of Ukraine, said on the results of his visit to the European Commission.

The Minister also informed that the talks at the European Commission were focused on possibility of carrying out any restoration works in ATO area for the time being.

“We cannot start any work there. We can only make plans and preparations. I have informed the colleagues from the European Commission about the situation and potential losses of infrastructure in ATO and border area. The reason I mentioned that is because I wanted them to start thinking about providing some kind of financial aid,” said Andrei Pivovarsky.
