Restoration of Izium in Kharkiv Oblast will require a lot of efforts, but life must return here.
During the siege of the city in March-April, Izium was actually turned into a ruin. The city remains without electricity, heat, water, demining continues. The number of civilian casualties is being specified, but it is hundreds of people.
According to preliminary estimates, 80% of Izium is destroyed. Staying in the city is still dangerous because there are still whole streets with anti-personnel mines and remnants of those mines that are even prohibited by the Geneva Convention.
