The Office of the President of Ukraine continues involving partners in the implementation of the Fast Recovery Plan and the restoration of the infrastructure damaged by the full-scale Russian invasion. On Tuesday, Deputy Head of the Office of the President Kyrylo Tymoshenko held a meeting with Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Romania to Ukraine Alexandru Victor Micula.
Kyrylo Tymoshenko spoke in detail about the recovery plan and the creation of a special reconstruction fund. He also informed about the initiative of President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, according to which partner states, individual cities and large businesses are offered to take under patronage the restoration of regions of Ukraine, individual objects or directions. Everyone can choose what to take care of.
The Deputy Head of the President's Office noted that the needs of our country are constantly updated, as the war continues and the Ukrainian Armed Forces de-occupy new territories. Now, on the eve of winter, the restoration of housing, networks and other critical infrastructure is urgent.
"Many citizens have already returned home, and they need to restore the roofs in their houses, replace windows and so on," noted Kyrylo Tymoshenko.
He added that part of the work, in particular the most urgent one, is carried out with budget funds, but Ukraine's resources are limited, so the help of partners is needed.
Alexandru Victor Micula noted that Romania is ready to support the recovery of Ukraine and is waiting for detailed information about the facilities and the Fast Recovery Plan, which can be presented to the government.
The Ambassador expressed interest in involving Romanian private individuals and companies in the recovery process, which could speed up the reconstruction of Ukraine, since the provision of budget funds requires bureaucratic procedures.
The Deputy Head of the President's Office noted that the Ukrainian troops are fighting for the liberation of the Luhansk region and the final de-occupation of the Kharkiv region. And in the already liberated areas of the Kharkiv region, the issue of restoring networks that were completely destroyed during hostilities is extremely urgent.
In the Sumy, Chernihiv and Kyiv regions, the most pressing issue is assistance in rebuilding citizens' homes. According to Kyrylo Tymoshenko, there are about 20,000 private houses in the Kyiv region that need urgent repair.
