Over an 80 kilometer stretch, there is only one service station, and drivers prefer not use these roads at all, for fear of damaging their cars. Accordingly, investors from Lviv also prefer to avoid the area. Peter Kosachevych has even reached out to Peter Yatsyk for help, a rich Canadian businessman with Boyko roots. But he declined. He had already tried to finance other projects that were never implemented and he saw his money disappear within the administration in Kiev.
Ruslan Kandybor has been the head of road maintenance for the Lviv region for over 10 years. He remembers 2012, the year that the Euro football tournament was held in Ukraine and in Poland, and Lviv was named host city, as well as Kiev, Kharkiv and Donetsk. Money began to flow from Kiev to Lviv, from the central budget to the local. But it all went to repairing roads in the region's biggest city Lviv, which hosted games, as well as to the roads used by football fans to reach the newly built ultra-modern football stadium.
Roads such as those connecting Lviv-Turka certainly did not see any money come their way. In addition, during that time, many small companies went out of business – they were never fully paid by the state for their work. That's why in the region, the Euro 2012 has sometimes left a bitter memory.
