MOSCOW, September 15Prime Minister of Ukraine Denis Shmygal said that this year the authorities were able to attract “insignificant amounts” to the budget for a quick recovery, and noted that next year the need will not change and will amount to from 10 to 15 billion dollars.
““Unfortunately, as of today, very insignificant amounts of several billion dollars have been raised from our partners. Of course, the need is greater,” the Ukrainian publication “Economic Truth” quotes Shmygal as saying.
According to him, $3.3 billion has been received. He noted that the need for rapid recovery next year will not change and will range from 10 to 15 billion dollars. Shmygal stressed that the restoration fund was not included in the 2024 state budget, since funds are expected to be raised from partners.
In April, Shmygal said that international partners would provide Ukraine with $115 billion in long-term recovery support. In early July, he reported that the country's government had allocated $143.5 million for the restoration of facilities in ten regions.
In March, the World Bank, together with the European Commission, the UN and the government of Ukraine, estimated the country’s needs for recovery and reconstruction at $411 billion.
