  • Oleksandr Kubrakov meets with delegation of U.S. security and foreign policy experts

    Oleksandr Kubrakov, Deputy Prime Minister for Restoration of Ukraine and Minister for Communities, Territories and Infrastructure Development, met with a delegation of senior U.S. national security and foreign policy experts led by Karolina Lindholm Billing, UNHCR Representative in Ukraine:

    “The focus of the conversation is on further U.S. support for our country. Continuing our joint work is extremely critical for us now – both in defence and recovery, including critical infrastructure and housing.

    More than 500 Ukrainian families have already purchased new housing under the compensation programme, and almost 39,000 have repaired their houses and apartments thanks to government targeted financial assistance. I would also like to note that our partners, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, have helped to rebuild more than 28,000 homes across the country.

    To ensure accountable and transparent reconstruction, we are working on the anti-corruption infrastructure.

    We have developed an Anti-Corruption Programme for 2023-2025. We have identified more than 50 risks and are working on them. We have developed an Anti-Corruption Compliance Strategy for the Ministry and all its subordinate agencies. We do the same in risk management. We have assessed risk management systems at the Ministry and 28 state-owned enterprises and developed a Risk Management Implementation Strategy for the Ministry, enterprises and agencies.

    We have created the DREAM digital reconstruction management ecosystem, which contains complete information about each reconstruction project. Today, there are more than 1,500 recovery projects from all over the country, and the number is constantly growing. We are working to make the use of DREAM mandatory for all communities in the near future. Full information about all recovery projects should be available to everyone, and especially to international partners.

    We also involve international partners in monitoring the recovery process. For example, more than 200 infrastructure facilities financed by the European Investment Bank are monitored by UNDP.”
