Japan to provide $95 million for Ukraine’s recovery

The government of Japan has earmarked $95 million for the restoration of Ukraine, the Infrastructure Ministry of Ukraine reported on Thursday.

The funds will be channeled to the U.N. Development Program under a partnership agreement signed by Matsuda Kuninori, Ambassador of Japan to Ukraine, and Ivana Živković, UNDP Assistant Administrator and Director for the Regional Bureau for Europe and Commonwealth of Independent States.

Oleksandr Kubrakov, Deputy Prime Minister for the Restoration of Ukraine, attended the signing ceremony.

“While the Armed Forces of Ukraine are liberating the territories from the occupiers, the Government in conjunction with international partners is working on the implementation of ‘survival projects’ to restore transport links with the liberated regions, create conditions for citizens to return to their homes and support the economy in the regions,” Kubrakov commented.

“It’s important to feel the consolidation of the entire civilized world around our country’s struggle against the Russian terrorist regime. The partnership of Ukraine, Japan and the UNDP is just an example of effective collaboration that allows us not only to counter the enemy but also to gradually recover what has been destroyed,” he added.
