President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky announced a state program for the construction of housing for those who lost it as a result of the occupation, as well as for the military, law enforcement officers, teachers and other public sector employees.
“At the first stage, temporary housing should be provided to displaced persons, those whose houses were destroyed by the war. Temporary – until we restore their housing. Or until people are compensated in square meters or money,” he said in a traditional video message on Saturday evening.
According to the president, at the second stage, “we are restoring what the occupiers tried to destroy – all the cities, communities that suffered.” “And at the third stage, we will provide housing for everyone who defended our state, who worked or is working in the interests of society, but did not have their own housing. It cannot be that a person gives everything, his life to military service, and retires without having his own apartment,” Zelensky said.
“I believe that we will be able not only to restore what was destroyed, but also to restore justice for those whose right to housing has been violated,” he said.
