  • Infrastructure Ministry hosts meeting with representatives of partner countries

    Today, the Ministry for Communities, Territories and Infrastructure Development hosted a regular meeting between the Ministry’s team led by Oleksandr Kubrakov, Deputy Prime Minister for Restoration of Ukraine and Minister for Communities, Territories and Infrastructure Development, and representatives of the United Nations, the United States, Japan, Canada, Sweden, Norway, Germany, Italy, Spain, Denmark, Slovenia, Ireland, Switzerland, Korea, Belgium, and the Netherlands.

    The meeting presented a UN initiative to create a community emergency relief fund. Support will focus on 5 priorities: housing; energy infrastructure; social, municipal and critical infrastructure (including transport); demining; and support for the private sector.

    “The Ministry’s team, together with the State Agency for Restoration and Infrastructure Development, is working systematically to ensure transparency and accountability in reconstruction, and to prioritise based on collected and verified data. Our current focus is on the launch of eVidnovlennia, a state aid programme for people whose homes suffered minor damage as a result of the Russian aggression, the launch of Fund for the elimination of the consequences of armed aggression; and the digital reconstruction management system, DREAM. We are grateful to the partners who are planning or already implementing projects to strengthen the capacity of communities, as this is a prerequisite for the success of reconstruction,” said Oleksandr Kubrakov during the roundtable.

    According to the World Bank report, nearly 18,000 multi-storey buildings, 135,000 private houses, 3,000 schools and kindergartens, more than 1,500 hospitals were damaged or destroyed, and 200,000 square kilometres of land were mined in Ukraine.
