Restoration of Ukraine

Ukraine is receiving assistance from a large number of countries in its recovery following the full-scale invasion by Russia in 2022.

In particular, in September of last year, U.S. President Joe Biden appointed a new Special Representative for U.S. Economic Recovery in Ukraine. Penny Pritzker assumed this role.

On December 21, 2023, Finland presented the first part of its national plan for the country's participation in the reconstruction and post-war reconstruction of Ukraine.

Additionally, Lithuania, Sweden, and Canada decided to establish the Group of Common Interests for Ukraine. It will focus on supporting the recovery of the Ukrainian transportation industry.

Furthermore, Ukraine and Romania signed a memorandum of understanding and cooperation, envisioning an increase in defense production capacities and the expansion of ammunition manufacturing.
