Another modular town developed for those who have lost their homes due to Russia’s war on Ukraine has been opened in in the town of Dmytrivka, the Kyiv Oblast Military Administration announced on March 25.
Regional authorities noted that the modular town, which is about 35 kilometers west of the center of the Ukrainian capital, consists of three sections, each with 21 rooms, a bathroom, a kitchen, a dining room, a children's room, and a clothes dryer.
The temporary housing is equipped with appliances, furniture, cookware, and other essentials. A 220 kW generator has also been installed to provide an independent source of power.
The modular town is designed to accommodate 252 people at a time. Currently, two sections are already home to 41 families, or 115 people. The third section is ready for new residents.
This is the 16th modular town in Kyiv Oblast to be opened with the assistance of the Polish government and support from the Ukrainian Ministry of Communities, Territories, and Infrastructure.
Around 12 million people in Ukraine – more than a quarter of the entire population – have been forced to leave their homes because of the war.
As of December, 38,000 residential buildings, many of them multi-apartment blocks, had been destroyed by Russian invasion forces in Ukraine, the Ukrainian authorities estimate.
