Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy observed the restoration of infrastructure facilities destroyed because of Russia’s full-scale aggression while on a working trip to Kherson Oblast on March 23, said the president’s press service. 

He visited the village of Posad-Pokrovske, where Russians had destroyed several houses and social infrastructure facilities.

The president was informed that restoration of electricity and water was underway, and the outpatient clinic was being rebuilt, just as residents began to gradually return to the village.
