Recently more than 700 participants of the Investment Forum in Mariupol saw that we do not promise but do. The road of life of Mariupol - Zaporizhzhya, 134 km of which we built in 68 days, testifies to this. In addition to the reconstruction of roads, we also pay great attention to the development of railway connections with Mariupol and the ports of the Azov region. Unity begins with one way to each other. We will fight for every Ukrainian, and I thank you for your support in this fight,” - Vladyslav Kryklii emphasized.
