President: Infrastructure reform is the biggest and most successful in recent decades, and we are moving forward

President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy noted that during his term in office a number of important reforms have already been successfully implemented, and some of the changes have begun, and they are in the process of implementation. The Head of State said this during a press marathon "30 questions to the President of Ukraine" dedicated to the equator of his term.

In particular, according to Volodymyr Zelenskyy, land and banking reforms have been launched, and the modernization of infrastructure is noted not only in Ukraine, but also in the world.

"Today, infrastructure reform is the largest and most successful in 50 years. I think this is a great progress. We measure progress in building a country in thousands of kilometers of roads. Not in one bridge, when we are proud that, for example, a bridge is being built in Zaporizhzhia. 150 bridges are already being built,” the President said.

The Head of State also reminded that the Ukrainian national air carrier had recently been launched. Judicial reform continues.

In addition, as Volodymyr Zelenskyy emphasized, de-oligarchization continues in Ukraine, one of the signs of which is the achievement of profitability of Ukrzaliznytsia JSC, state ports and Boryspil International Airport.

"This is de-oligarchization, because we understand what kind of people were everywhere - not just representatives of the oligarchs, but some former officials and some former employees. Their “tentacles” are in everything that belongs to the state of Ukraine, the people of Ukraine. And today we have these areas profitable," the President stressed.

"I respect big business in terms of jobs, but it is very important that big business is not  oligarchic and does not influence the media and politicians," he added.

Volodymyr Zelenskyy also noted that due to the COVID-19 pandemic and energy challenges, society pays little attention to important victories in other areas, and as President he does not always have enough time to explain everything.

"I make 100 decisions every day. I don't have time to communicate all my decisions with the public, I don't have my media in my "wallet" for someone to help communicate it. But there is a result," the Head of State stressed.

At the same time, the President emphasized that Ukrainians use new roads, citizens are provided with vaccines, there are beds with oxygen in renovated hospitals, and so on.
