During a working trip to the Zaporizhzhia region, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy held a meeting on the current situation in the region.
The Head of State heard information from Head of the Zaporizhzhia Regional Military Administration Oleksandr Starukh, as well as the military leadership and the leadership of the National Police in the region.
Oleksandr Starukh reported to the President that almost 60% of the region's territory is temporarily occupied by Russian troops, and fighting is underway in some parts. According to him, 77 settlements of the Zaporizhzhia region were cut off from electricity due to hostilities. The enemy destroyed 2,701 infrastructure facilities, of which almost 700 have been rebuilt to date.
Humanitarian hubs have been set up in the Zaporizhzhia region to shelter residents of the temporarily occupied territories and settlements where hostilities continue.
"Over the last 15 days the largest number of people have come from the Kherson region. They also come from Mariupol," said the RMA Head.
The President instructed the leadership of the Zaporizhzhia region to provide all necessary assistance to persons displaced from the temporarily occupied territories.
"Many people come from settlements that are temporarily occupied by the enemy. We need to focus on solving their problems, providing them with housing. It is also necessary to take care of the employment of these people. I am sure that there are qualified specialists among them," Volodymyr Zelenskyy said.
