About 55% of the roads in the region have been completely or partially destroyed: 1613 kilometres of local roads have been destroyed, and 2472 kilometres have been partially damaged. Ihor Turchenko, director of the state enterprise “Roads of Kharkiv Region,” said this during a briefing.

At the beginning of this year, the state enterprise began restoring road connections in the de-occupied territories.

One of these areas is the Khotimlia-Martove road, which was utterly destroyed. The repairs are now 75% complete and are scheduled to be completed in September 2023. This road will help transport goods and evacuate people from the border areas of Vovchansk and Velykyi Burluk.

The local road Hrakove-Bazaliyivka is also being restored to provide a detour in case of dam repairs in Pechenihy. The works are currently 75% complete.
