The amount of infrastructure investment announced by President Volodymyr Zelensky is smaller than it was planned by the government. This was announced by the Minister of Infrastructure of Ukraine Volodymyr Omelyan.
According to him, the Transport Strategy for 2030 envisages investments in infrastructure at the level of $ 60 billion by 2030, that is, $ 30 billion by 2025.
At the same time, Zelensky said that investments in infrastructure over the next 5 years should amount to $ 20 billion.
“Do we really want to spend $ 10 billion less on infrastructure?” Omelian wonders.
He also added the president announced that the number of airports in Ukraine should be 15 (at the same time, according to the minister, there are now 16), and the number of operating ports should increase to 5 (according to Omelyan, there are currently 13 seaports in Ukraine).
