President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy emphasizes that the Large Construction program helps modernize the infrastructure in the country and creates additional jobs, which is especially important during the COVID-19 pandemic. He said this in an interview to VIP with Natalia Moseychuk program on 1+1 TV channel.
Large Construction is a really cool reform in Ukraine that has worked. Not many reforms worked. Large Construction created about 200 thousand jobs. Although after the first - during the second wave of COVID-19 Ukrainians lost almost 350-400 thousand jobs. And Large Construction returned 200 (thousand jobs - ed.)," the Head of State noted.
According to Volodymyr Zelenskyy, one of the main reforms for any country is to improve infrastructure. In particular, he recalled the statement of US President Joe Biden on the launch of infrastructure reform in the United States, the budget of which is more than 2 trillion dollars.
The Head of State also noted that the results of the Large Construction program are noticeable not in all Ukrainian cities, as there are local roads for which Ukravtodor is not responsible. But outside the cities, Ukrainians already have improved infrastructure.
“Large theft” sounds rather offensive, but everyone has the right to speak. However, there must be evidence under the words… If there is any evidence, you’re welcome. I will not cover anyone," the President emphasized.
