On 17 August, the Director-General of the World Trade Organisation (WTO), Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, arrived in Irpin, where she saw with her own eyes the traces of the atrocities committed by the Russian occupiers. In particular, she visited the most damaged residential complex Irpin Lipki, a car cemetery and the destroyed Romanivsky Bridge.
During the trip, the WTO Director-General was accompanied by the First Vice Prime Minister of Ukraine, Minister of Economy of Ukraine Yulia Svyrydenko and the Head of the Kyiv Regional Military Administration Ruslan Kravchenko. This was reported by the press service of the Kyiv Regional Military Administration (photos are posted at the bottom of the news).
"I told her and showed her the destruction that the city and the entire Kyiv region have suffered due to Russian aggression. Ms Ngozi knows firsthand what war is. As a child, she also had to go through these horrors," Kravchenko said.
Thus, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala was able to see how more than 60 private sector houses are being comprehensively restored opposite the Irpin Lipki residential complex, and one of the high-rise buildings is being rebuilt in the residential complex itself.
"We also talked about the comprehensive restoration of destroyed facilities together with businesses both in the region and in the country as a whole. I shared the stories of our entrepreneurs who started their businesses during the war. I am grateful to Ms Ngozi for her visit and support!" said the head of the KRMA.
As OBOZREVATEL previously reported, a new mural dedicated to the city's defenders against the occupiers has appeared in Irpin. You can see the mural on one of the buildings in the city's central square.
