At its meeting on 12 December, the Cabinet of Ministers adopted two decisions that will allow attracting additional resources for the reconstruction of Ukraine. This was announced by Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal.
“The first is an amendment to the grant agreement with the EIB for the modernisation of the water supply and sewage system in Mykolaiv. The amount of the grant will be increased from EUR 5 million to EUR 8 million. The second decision is to attract EUR 4.5 million in grant funds from the IBRD and the International Development Association for the repair of damaged housing,” the Head of Government said.
The Prime Minister noted that the fruitful cooperation between Ukraine and USAID continued in all key areas. One of the latest initiatives is a partnership with Ukrzaliznytsia to integrate it into the Trans-European Transport Network. USD 225 million will be provided for the construction of a 75 km double-track railway.
“We are also rebuilding hospitals and clinics so that people have universal access to medical services. Following the russian invasion, 847 health facilities have already been fully or partially restored,” said Denys Shmyhal.
The Prime Minister thanked all partners who had supported initiatives to rebuild Ukraine. Thus, the British government will help restore bridges in Kyiv region, the German government provides funds for soft loans to IDPs, and Japan has announced the allocation of USD 4.5 billion for recovery programmes.
