The PM also informed that 15 billion hryvnias have been provided for construction and repair of main lines and national roads.

"For the last two years we have repaired and put into operation about three thousand km of roads," Azarov specified.

"We can see there is improvement, but the situation on road safety is not satisfactory yet," he added. Azarov informed that each year about 300 thousand of new cars appear on the roads.
