Ukraine will need $17 billion for the quick recovery from the consequences of the Russian invasion, said the Prime Minister of Ukraine, Denys Shmyhal, according to the results of the Ukraine-EU Association Council’s 8th meeting in Brussels, reports Interfax-Ukraine.
Our state will receive $3.4 billion already in 2022 from the required $17 billion, and the rest in 2023, the head of government said.
According to Denys Shmyhal, the Ministry of Community and Territorial Development, together with the World Bank, has already verified $326 billion in direct, physical damage from Russia’s aggression. $105 billion of them is the confirmed amount needed to restore various facilities.
According to the opinion of the European Investment Bank’s (EIB) head, Werner Heuer, Ukraine’s post-war reconstruction could cost €1 trillion, or $1.1 trillion, to be allocated as foreign aid.
