Ukraine needs a long-term commitment from the European Union and other allies for post-war reconstruction. That was the message sent by the country’s Minister of Communities and Provinces during his visit to Brussels. Oleksiy Chernyshov was speaking to Euronews after submitting a report to the European Commission detailing Ukraine’s current and future needs.
He said, “At the moment we are focused on our needs to survive, the things we need to get ready for the winter, and we have put in place the $3.4 billion needed for the next four months, which we are now discussing extensively. We will create – and it is already under way – an appropriate trust fund to manage. The World Bank will be operational soon.”
