“Now there is information about 5 dead. By the end we have final data. We already know about the destruction of 24 buildings, 59 have severe damage. Priority – people. Relocation handled by the head of the regional state administration. We decided to provide 300 thousand UAH to each family who lost a house to buy a new home. Separately, we highlight 20 thousand hryvnias to each person to maintain” said Zelensky.
