The report states that the needs for restoration and reconstruction in the social, industrial and infrastructure sectors amount to 349 billion dollars – this is 1.5 times the GDP of Ukraine in 2021.

Over the next three years, Ukraine will need $105 billion to meet urgent needs such as rebuilding education and health systems and infrastructure, preparing for the coming winter by restoring heating and power to homes, supporting agriculture and repairing vital transport routes. In addition, demining and demolition of debris requires expenses.

As of June 1, losses to Ukraine are estimated at $97 billion. The housing sector (40% of the total amount of damage), transport (31%), trade and industry (10%) was the most affected. Donetsk, Luhansk and Kharkiv regions are the most affected, followed by Kyiv, Chernihiv and Zaporizhzhya regions.

The total damage is almost 252 billion dollars.

We will remind you that in the summer, Ukraine presented the country’s recovery plan at a special conference in Lugano.
