The Mykolaiv region borders Russia, which is why it is one of the regions that suffered the most from the full-scale Russian war. The centre of the region, the city of Mykolaiv, is under Russian shelling daily, because of which the public infrastructure is highly damaged or destroyed.
The Department of architecture and urban planning of Mykolaiv announced the arrival of the French architect Martin Maurice Henri Duplantier in the city. Mr Duplantier announced his intention to prepare and implement a plan for the restoration of a public garden with an area of 9 km². The project will be implemented from the budget of Martin Duplantier Architectes without attracting funds from the city.
