The UK and Poland have agreed to build two temporary settlements for IDPs in the Poltava and Lviv regions, Rueters reports.
It is planned to spend $12.3 million on the construction of settlements. In two villages, as specified by the British government, houses will be built for more than 700 IDPs.
“Over the past year, Putin has continued to strike at homes and civilian infrastructure, for which the Ukrainian people have paid a heavy price. This new British-Polish partnership will help provide light, warmth and homes to those most in need,” said British Foreign Secretary James Cleverly.
Poland and the UK are consistently helping Ukraine build temporary housing for IDPs from war zones. So, on March 27, additional modular houses were opened in Lviv in the town of “Mariapolis”, in which 1,500 refugees currently live.
The construction of modular houses for IDPs in Lviv began last spring. After the Russian troops began massive shelling of Ukrainian energy infrastructure facilities, it was decided to increase the number of such houses, as well as to modernize them, since they were not suitable for the winter cold.
