Ukraine’s Minister of Infrastructure Oleksandr Kubrakov announced this, showing photographs of the aftermath of the presence of Russian troops in the region, the CFTS portal reports. 

"We already saw in the Kyiv and Chernihiv regions that the enemy destroys bridges and overpasses when fleeing... A large infrastructure team—the leaderships of the ministry, Ukravtodor, Ukrzaliznytsia, and Ukrposhta - are now working here. Everyone must assess the damage and rebuilding priorities,” said Kubrakov.

According to the minister, the Kharkiv regional division of the State Road Service (Ukravtodor) is already clearing the remains of the occupiers' equipment from roads. The plan is to build two temporary crossings over destroyed bridges and clear 30 kilometers of roads in a week.

“The Ukrainian Railways joint-stock company (Ukrzaliznytsia) is restoring railway tracks following demining operations. The priority is to restore the railway link with Balakliia,” Kubrakov said.
