The Japanese government allocated 95 million dollars for the reconstruction of Ukraine

These funds will be sent to the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) as part of a partnership agreement.

It was signed today by the Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Japan to Ukraine Kuninori Matsuda and Assistant to the Head of UNDP, Director of the Regional Bureau of UNDP in Europe, and the CIS Ivana Zhivkovych with the participation of the Deputy Prime Minister for the Reconstruction of Ukraine Oleksandr Kubrakov.

“While the Armed Forces of Ukraine are liberating the territories from the occupiers, the Government, together with international partners, is working on the implementation of “survival projects” – restoring transport links with the liberated regions, creating conditions for the return of citizens to their homes, and supporting the economy in the regions.

It is important to feel the consolidation of the entire civilized world around our country’s struggle against the Russian terrorist regime. The partnership between Ukraine, Japan, and the UN Development Program is just an example of effective cooperation that allows not only to counter the enemy, but also to restore the destroyed gradually.

Thanks to our partners from Japan and the UN for their support. We expect that we will only deepen it, in particular in the matter of restoring critical infrastructure. We see the understanding of our partners that help in this matter is urgent and vital for Ukraine,” commented Oleksandr Kubrakov, Deputy Prime Minister for the Reconstruction of Ukraine – Minister of Community Development, Territories and Infrastructure.

Ukraine’s aid programme focuses on five key areas:

◾️ strengthening the government’s ability to respond to the crisis and manage it;
◾️ support for public services so that they can continue their work;
◾️ restoration of critical infrastructure so that people can return home safely;
◾️ supporting private enterprises so that they continue to work, thereby supporting communities;
◾️ strengthening civil society and social ties.

Earlier, in April 2022, Japan had already allocated 4.5 million dollars for the emergency clearance of the area from explosive objects and clearing debris.
