Ukraine would provide an extra 950 million U.S. dollars for road construction and maintenance, Prime Minister Mykola Azarov said here Wednesday according to Xinhua.

The funds would be used to repair regional highways in eastern and central Ukraine and to build an urban highway in the southern city of Zaporozhie, Azarov said at a government meeting.

The funding was an addition to the about 3 billion dollars allocated from the 2013 budget for the rehabilitation of the country's road network.
