As the military aggression of the russian federation did not allow to continue the implementation of the Project as it was planned, USIF Executive Committee, after careful study of the situation and consultation with a donor representative (KfW), recognized the:

- impossibility of further implementation of 2 SPs for creation of housing for IDPs in Izyum, Kharkiv region and Lantseve village, Zaporizhzhia region;

- need to cease execution of additional works in the framework of 2 SPs related to renovation of educational institutions in Blagovishchenka village, Zaporizhzhia region and Mariupol, Donetsk region and suspend the initially planned construction works at the objects of 2 SPs in Chuguiv, Kharkiv region as well as 2 SPs in Gulyaypole, Zaporizhzhia region.

Construction works on IDP housing facility in Chuguiv, Kharkiv region are already resumed.

In order to continue construction works on another facility in Chuguiv - gymnasium №5, preparations for tender selection of a contractor are underway.

The troublesome security situation still does not allow to resume implementation of 2 other SPs (IDP housing and kindergarten facilities) in Gulyaypole, Zaporizhzhia region.
