Mykola Lukashuk, Head of Dnipropetrovsk Oblast Council, Deputy Chair of Dnipropetrovsk Oblast Defense Council, made this statement at a briefing at Media Center Ukraine — Ukrinform.
“Within almost a year of the full-scale invasion, 217 people have died in our region. At the last session, which took place on February 3, we allocated funds to support these families. If a person has died, families will be able to receive assistance from the regional budget in the amount of UAH 300,000. According to our statistics, 4,045 houses in the region were destroyed in one way or another, whether by rockets or shells. Currently, these buildings are being restored by the city authorities,” — Lukashuk said.
The Head of the Oblast Council noted that Nikopol is home to the largest number of residential buildings damaged by shelling, mainly — 2,000 objects. 30% to 40% of the housing stock has been destroyed in Zelenodolsk community, Kryvyi Rih district.
