"The process will be the same as at the beginning of the construction of the multifunctional sports complex Kharkov-Arena," said Rabinovych.
He has also mentioned that the framing is currently being installed in the sports complex Kharkov-Arena and soon it will be possible to start mounting the roof. "The projects of redesign of the adjacent territory are now being developed as well as of redesign of the old Palace of Sports; we are also preparing the projects of construction of pipelines and networks. That is, we conduct large-scale works with involvement of many contractors," reported the head of the department.
