    Next month, the Government will present Ukraine's Recovery Plan - United24, and today invites countries to join its implementation. This was stated by Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal during an online speech at the British-Ukrainian Infrastructure Summit.

    "We rely on a regional approach, which involves the care of one of the partner countries over a particular region or industry. Denmark has already agreed to take care of the reconstruction of Mykolayiv region. The Baltic States will help restore Zhytomyr region. Portugal will rebuild Ukrainian schools. And everyone in Ukraine knows that the United Kingdom, as promised by Prime Minister Boris Johnson, will take part in the reconstruction and development of Kyiv and its region, "said Denys Shmyhal.

    The Prime Minister noted that Ukraine is developing an ambitious recovery plan and believes that British companies will play a key role in this reconstruction.

    "Today, Britain and the British people are standing side by side with us at this difficult time in our history. And I am sure that it will be the same in the future, "Denys Shmyhal underscored.

    According to the Prime Minister, the amount of infrastructure damage has already reached $ 104 billion. At least 45 million square meters of housing, 656 hospitals, more than 1,200 educational institutions, nearly 25,000 kilometers of roads, 300 bridges and 12 airports were destroyed or damaged as a result of shelling by the russian army. Denys Shmyhal noted that the Ukrainian Government, international experts and the European Commission estimate the total size of the reconstruction program at EUR 500-600 billion.

    "That's why we say that Ukraine's victory on the battlefield is 50% of victory. The other 50% is the restoration and reconstruction of our state, the transformation of our economy, energy and infrastructure, "the Head of Government stressed.

    Great Britain can play one of the key roles in the reconstruction of Ukraine, says Denys Shmyhal
