The government has allocated "unprecedented funding" for rapid recovery – more than UAH 43bn from the Fund for the Mitigation of Consequences of Armed Aggression. The funds will be used to urgently repair energy facilities, support affected communities, build water pipelines in Dnipropetrovsk Region, schools, hospitals and shelters.

The Cabinet of Ministers has also adopted a resolution to redistribute a subvention of UAH 1.7bn to finance recovery projects in the regions, Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal has announced.

"These are the funds of the European Investment Bank that we are sending to the territories controlled by Ukraine to the budgets of city, village and settlement communities," he said.

At the government meeting, Shmyhal added that the government agreed to pay almost UAH 838m for damaged housing under the eRestoration programme. Applications from Ukrainians whose homes have been completely destroyed are now being accepted.
