Minister of Youth and Sports of Ukraine Vadim Gutzeit said that the amount of damage that Russia has caused to the sports infrastructure of our country is estimated at hundreds of millions of dollars.
“We have suffered 73 sports facilities, somewhere they are completely destroyed, somewhere there is damage to the roof. We have already calculated about $110 million in losses, which is how much 73 objects are now worth.
We are collecting data, a group is already working to restore sports infrastructure and sports after the war. We are already working out what we will have to restore, what to build, what conditions we must create for the athletes.
There are many plans, because it is necessary to preserve the sport of the highest achievements so that Ukraine is competitive at the Olympic Games not only in 2024, but also in 2028 and all subsequent ones,” Gutzeit said.
