"We’ve done everything in our powers to raise $120 million for the local budgets of the Donetsk and Lugansk regions. The money will be used for the prompt financing of Donbass restoration," the presidential press-service quotes Poroshenko as saying.
First and foremost the disbursed funds will be used to repair 21 schools, build and repair 232 outpatient clinics and 29 childcare centers.
"The overall value of projects for repairing and upgrading social facilities will exceed $40 million. Considerable attention will be paid to water supply infrastructures and sewage systems. Funds for 113 such facilities have been reserved," the presidential staff said.
In the Lugansk Region, 60 kilometers of roads will be laid and six bridges will be designed, repaired and restored.
