The document was signed by the Minister of Infrastructure of Ukraine Alexander Kubrakov and Turkish Trade Minister Mehmet Mus.
“Turkish business has extensive experience in the construction of roads and bridges, in particular, the Zaporozhye and Kremenchug bridges, and has established itself as a reliable partner. Therefore, we expect that we will soon reach concrete practical results of joint restoration,” Kubrakov said.
It is assumed that Turkish government and business structures can develop specific restoration projects, as well as provide consulting and technical assistance.
As the first project, the restoration of the bridge in the village of Romanovka, Kyiv region, connecting Bucha and Irpen with the capital, is being considered. It was destroyed at the beginning of a full-scale Russian invasion and, in fact, this stopped the attack of the aggressor on the capital.
In the near future, a joint Ukrainian-Turkish working group on restoration issues will be created, within which mechanisms will be worked out to attract Turkish investments in specific projects.
