This Tuesday, a new support conference for Ukraine, on emergency aid and the reconstruction of the country, is being held in Paris. It was on this occasion that Dmytro Kuleba gave an interview to Darius Rochebin broadcast on LCI, to discuss what could cost, in the long term, the restoration of a country ravaged by more than nine months of war: “For Ukraine to recover, it will take hundreds of billions of euros. It is still too early to give an exact figure because the war is still going on. But two things are clear: this amount will be in the hundreds [de milliards, ndlr] and much of that will have to be paid by Russia, including from frozen assets around the world.”
The Ukrainian official also hopes that this summit will make it possible to meet the most urgent needs of his country while the energy infrastructures are the privileged targets of the Russian army and an icy cold weighs on Ukraine: “We expect a coordinated effort under the leadership of France to meet our most urgent needs, in generators, transformers and spare parts in order to maintain an energy system.”continues the close friend of Volodymyr Zelensky.
