Govt launches website to raise funds to support Ukraine under United24 global project – PM

KYIV. May 3 (Interfax-Ukraine) – The Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine is launching a website to raise funds to support Ukraine under the United24 global project, Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal has said.

"Now we are forming a vision for a new Ukraine. Therefore, it is so important for our government to shape a plan for the restoration and transformation of our state right now," Shmyhal said at a government meeting on Tuesday.

According to the prime minister, the recovery plan will have two dimensions: regional and parametric.

In particular, regional is when partner countries or sister cities or corporations help in the restoration of a particular Ukrainian city or region. The Parametric Approach is a program of the National Recovery Council that develops parameters for the recovery and transformation of each sector of the economy.

"These are new approaches and new policies. Modern and European. The goal is not just to rebuild what was destroyed, but to build a modern European civilized and developed state. To make the process systematic and more transparent, the government launches the website u24.gov.ua. This is a platform for raising funds to support Ukraine under the United24 global project," Shmyhal said.

He said that every person in the world can make a donation on this platform.

"The creation of a platform is also necessary to demonstrate maximum transparency and openness in the use of the collected funds: where and to whom they are sent. The National Bank will report daily on the collection of funds. All ministries will present to the public their reports on what the funds were used for. Deloitte in Ukraine, which is part of the Deloitte international network, will check the reporting of ministries and guarantee the transparency of the platform," the prime minister said.

Shmyhal said that presumably the funds will be distributed in three main areas: the first is defense and demining; the second is humanitarian and medical assistance, as well as assistance to children; the third is the restoration of Ukraine, the restoration of critical infrastructure, roads, bridges, schools and hospitals, the restoration of electricity, water supply and communications.
