Deputy Prime Minister – Minister for Reintegration of the Temporarily Occupied Territories of Ukraine Oleksiy Reznikov met with Principal Advisor to USAID’s Administrator Mark Feierstein during his working visit to the United States.
The parties discussed the current situation in Ukraine and USAID’s assistance in development in such key areas as the rule of law, economic growth, and health care, Ukrinform reports citing the Ministry’s website.
"It is difficult to overestimate the support provided by USAID and the U.S. Government. Over the past few years, the agency has allocated more than $650 million in various assistance programs to our country. USAID implements 49 long-term and medium-term programs in Ukraine, including long-term programs to assist Ukrainian citizens affected by Russia's armed aggression. I am also grateful for the consistent support lent by the United States to the Government of Ukraine," Reznikov said.
Reznikov and Feierstein also focused on USAID support for Ukrainian citizens affected by Russia's continued military aggression in eastern Ukraine.
Principal Advisor Feierstein and Deputy Prime Minister Reznikov discussed further USAID assistance to communities affected by Russia's armed aggression in eastern Ukraine, as well as opportunities to further promote the U.S.-Ukraine strategic partnership, including President Zelensky's upcoming visit to Washington.
Feierstein stressed the importance of Ukraine's further achievements in implementing key reforms and reiterated the United States' unwavering support for Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity.
Reznikov praised the U.S. Government's decision to bolster a number of Ukrainian Government projects.
