The prime minister demanded that the Ukravtodor head put the roads in order in Ukraine.

In response to Nowak's report, Prime Minister Volodoymyr Hroisman asked to demonstrate several videos of poor road conditions in Ukraine.

The PM sharply criticized the quality of repair works by Ukravtodor's crews.

"I want to take you back to the reality. I want you to understand the challenges we are facing. What we've just seen is not a matter of yesterday, and it's a challenge for us.

"During the year, you will have access to 30 billion hryvnia [$1.1 billion - ed.]. ... You can count on 30 billion this year. But I want to see quality and normal organization of work. Organize a control," the PM demanded from the Ukravtodor head.

Hroisman also said Nowak was not too enthusiastic about his report and asked the official to be more responsible and start working.
