Such support is extremely valuable and allows us to implement rapid and humanitarian recovery projects in a timely and high-quality manner. For our part, we coordinate and ensure maximum transparency and accountability for the successful implementation of the agreements," said Oleksandr Kubrakov, Deputy Prime Minister for Restoration of Ukraine, Minister for Communities, Territories and Infrastructure Development of Ukraine.
    The agreements stipulate that the grant funds will be used to improve and support the following areas:

    - equipment for humanitarian demining;

    - transport services;

    - energy services;

    - demolition waste management;
