  • Donor meeting on managing Ukraine’s recovery held

    Oleksandr Kubrakov, Deputy Prime Minister for Restoration of Ukraine and Minister for Communities, Territories and Infrastructure Development, met with representatives of the Donor Coordination Platform for Ukraine’s recovery. In particular, the meeting was attended by representatives of the United States, Poland, Estonia, Japan, the Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Denmark, Canada, the United Kingdom, Spain, and the United Nations.

    The meeting focused on key projects and principles of reconstruction, cooperation with local authorities, and involvement of international partners.

    “In order to coordinate international assistance at a high level, a Donor Coordination Platform was established last year with representatives from the G7 countries and global financial institutions. At the same time, to ensure high-quality communication at all levels, we held a working meeting with the heads of delegations of donor countries, where our team presented the results of the Ministry’s work with international financial organisations.

    The projects that were discussed will allow us to carry out reconstruction this year. First of all, we need to provide citizens with access to basic services that ensure their livelihoods. We are already creating the conditions that will help us bring Ukrainians back home. We are grateful to our partners for their help, concerns and deep involvement in all the reconstruction processes that are taking place not only on construction sites, but also in our institutions and reform efforts,” commented Oleksandr Kubrakov, Deputy Prime Minister for Restoration of Ukraine and Minister for Communities, Territories and Infrastructure Development.

    The recovery priorities include:

    • housing repair and construction;
    • restoration of energy infrastructure, development of small-scale generation projects and protection of the existing power grid;
    • rebuilding social infrastructure (schools, kindergartens, hospitals, etc.);
    • restoration of bridges, roads, railways and development of border infrastructure.

    The main objective of reconstruction for 2023 is to create conditions for Ukrainians to return to their homes. A 3-step approach is planned for this purpose:

    • restoration of critical infrastructure necessary for life (water, heat and electricity supply systems)
    • stabilisation measures, including housing construction and involvement of people who have lost their jobs in this process;
    • implementation of development projects aimed at reviving economic activity in the liberated communities.

    The meeting was also attended by Deputy Ministers for Communities, Territories and Infrastructure Development Oleksandra Azarkhina and Anna Yurchenko, as well as Head of the State Agency for Restoration and Infrastructure Development Mustafa Nayyem.
