These include projects in the energy sector, defence industry, rebuilding social and critical infrastructure, and economic recovery. Their estimated value, according to the German side, is about EUR 16 billion,” stressed the Head of Government.

    Inter alia, in the energy sector: the United States will provide USD 824 million to support Ukraine's energy infrastructure. Moreover, an agreement with Germany for EUR 30 million to improve the reliability of our energy system was inked.

    “The World Bank will provide an additional USD 47 million grant to be used to purchase thermal equipment for Kharkiv. The EU will provide an additional 1,000 generators and solar panels. This is in support of our efforts to decentralise the energy system,” noted Denys Shmyhal.

    Besides, Memorandums have been signed with many leading companies on decentralised electricity production, increasing the use of renewable energy sources, introducing energy-efficient technologies, building smart grids and restoring hydroelectric power plants.

    Besdies, Ukraine together with the United States is working on the allocation of USD 7.8 billion in budget support, as well as USD 1.5 billion for economic recovery. Apart from that, the SME Resilience Alliance for Ukraine was launched. This is a commitment to support our SMEs worth over EUR 7 billion.

The planned budget is EUR 700 million over three years. The U.S. DFC has announced funding for risk insurance worth USD 350 million.
