  • Oleksandr Kubrakov met with Prime Minister of Denmark Mette Frederiksen

    Oleksandr Kubrakov, Deputy Prime Minister for Restoration of Ukraine and Minister for Communities, Territories and Infrastructure Development, met with Prime Minister of Denmark Mette Frederiksen.

    “We continue our work in Lviv region. Under the chairmanship of Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal, we held a working meeting with Prime Minister of Denmark Mette Frederiksen.

    Denmark is one of our most committed partners in the reconstruction process, and we appreciate this cooperation. Today we are focusing on three key issues.

    Restoration of Mykolaiv and Mykolaiv region

    In the spring of 2023, Denmark assumed patronage of the region. Since then, we have already made progress in rebuilding the city – most of the projects of previous aid packages have either been completed or are in successful progress. This is an exemplary cooperation between the state, partners and local authorities. Ukraine-Denmark cooperation will focus on 8 areas: infrastructure, good governance, maritime industry, transport, urban planning, small and medium-sized business development, youth and culture. In 2023, Denmark has already allocated more than USD 100 million for the restoration of Mykolaiv region.

    Housing reconstruction

    We continue to develop the programme of state financial assistance for urgent and major repairs of housing, as well as compensation for the purchase of new housing for those whose homes were destroyed as a result of russian military aggression. More than 40,000 Ukrainians have already been able to restore their homes, and almost a thousand have purchased new ones. I invited Denmark to join this project through the World Bank’s guarantee mechanism. We will continue the programme in 2024, providing Ukrainians with housing here and now.


    Even before the full-scale invasion, the Ministry of Defence of Denmark and the then Ministry of Infrastructure of Ukraine signed a memorandum on the construction of multipurpose vessels for the Navy and the Search and Rescue Service. After the start of full-scale aggression, the project was suspended. I believe it is time to revive it.

    At the same time, our sincere gratitude goes to the Danish Government and the people of Denmark for their support in defence and security guarantees. The training of Ukrainian pilots and engineers on F-16 fighters continues. I am confident that these aircraft will soon be defending our skies,” said Oleksandr Kubrakov.
