Norway provides Ukraine with $73m to restore energy infrastructure

Norway is providing Ukraine with an additional NOK 1.1 billion (more than $73 million) to restore damaged energy infrastructure.

This is stated on the website of the Norwegian government.

Russia's attacks on energy facilities in Ukraine have made critical infrastructure security a key issue in Ukraine, and one of the main focuses of Norway's Support Programme for Ukraine. 

Norway will provide an additional NOK 1.1 billion to help Ukraine rebuild critical infrastructure, the government website says.

"We are in close dialogue with Ukraine on how it can use these funds most effectively. Ukrainians themselves understand what is needed best. But it is important to start repairing infrastructure quickly, before the onset of winter. Norway hopes that this new funding will help mitigate some of the damage and ensure electricity supply in Ukraine," Mr Støre said.

It is known that 120 million Norwegian kroner will be used to repair energy infrastructure in Kharkiv Region, which suffered the most from Russian attacks this spring.

  • The European Union has signed the first guarantee agreements worth €1.4 billion under the investment component of the Ukraine Facility programme. That's why I have launched the Ukraine Investment Framework, which will help accelerate Ukraine's recovery, including its energy infrastructure.
