Ukrainian president plans to create Ministry of Reintegration of Donbas.

President Volodymyr Zelensky has called on Ukraine's international partners and business representatives to join the implementation of infrastructure and social projects in Donetsk and Luhansk regions.

He said this during his speech at 4th Ukrainian Lunch in Munich on February 15, the press service of the head of state reported.

The president, in particular, recalled that a global fund had been created in Ukraine to restore the Donbas infrastructure.

"It combines two “windows”. The first one is for international partners, organizations and foundations. The second is for the Ukrainian fund, which will attract funds from the private sector and individual donors,” Zelensky said.

According to the president, the key priorities of the fund are large infrastructure projects, work with local business and its affordable crediting, care for the least protected groups of the population, overcoming the consequences of the war, with a focus on youth, women, children and veterans.

"For the first time, such a fund is administered jointly by the World Bank, the Office of the President and the Government of Ukraine," Zelensky stressed.

In addition, the head of state told about the plans to establish the Ministry of Reintegration and Restoration of Donbas. "I urge our international partners to join us and start raising funds for the reconstruction and reintegration of Donbas," the president summed up.
