There will definitely be victory. There is no doubt about it! However, it is already obvious that Ukraine will need full recovery.
This will be the largest economic project of our time in Europe, which can currently be estimated at more than a trillion US dollars, as noted by the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyi during his speech opening the session of the New York Stock Exchange.
Speech of the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyi
Guarantor of Ukraine has invited and urged to invest in Ukraine now - the largest project for several generations.
"Its volume is already estimated at hundreds of billions of dollars. And with the necessary modernization of Ukrainian infrastructure, taking into account security needs, it is more than a trillion dollars. And in a fairly short term - less than ten years," the head of state said at a meeting with big business leaders.
Russia deliberately targets residential buildings, hospitals, schools, critical infrastructure facilities, and nuclear power plants. Despite constant monitoring of destruction, the exact number of destroyed objects cannot be determined. However, it is already known that since the beginning of the war, more than 115 thousand private houses, more than 15 thousand high-rise buildings, more than a thousand educational institutions and more than 500 hospitals have been damaged and destroyed. 25 thousand kilometers of roads were destroyed, more than 300 bridges were damaged or destroyed.
Zelenskyi told potential investors about the implementation of the already started reconstruction project of Ukraine after hostilities under the Fast Recovery Plan, which allows for the immediate restoration of all necessary infrastructure in the liberated territory and takes into account the best modern construction standards of comfort and safety.
"Infrastructure funds will find a large number of projects in airports and in the construction of new roads and bridges. Real estate funds will receive a market with hundreds of millions of square meters of new housing, offices, logistics, and industrial real estate. Banks and financial institutions can enter the huge lending market for all these projects in Ukraine. Insurance companies will be able to offer new insurance products — taking into account the specifics of our region and our risks. Hotel operators will be able to reveal our great tourist and business potential," Zelensky believes.
About 80% of Ukrainian territory is free from the enemy, and the Ukrainian soldiers and people are constantly and daily increasing this number, moving towards victory and at the same time continuing to support the economy. Most of Ukraine is already ready to implement new business projects.
And this is not only about humanitarian aid, it is about the unity of the whole world in the struggle for a bright and peaceful future. And any company that will be able to put the Made in Ukraine mark on its product will automatically become a part of the history of Ukrainian courage and victory, a globally known history, and at the same time - a part of our life, which we protect with all our might and with the help of the strongest world powers and leaders," Zelensky emphasized.
The team of the League of Renewal of Ukraine joins international cooperation. The fund's specialists have developed innovative technological resources, such as ONOVA GIS HUB and GIS Portal "Let's renew Ukraine together", in partnership with the company ESRI (USA) and the public organization "Elektronna Ukraine". As of today, they are already implemented and used in 20 communities and in cooperation with relevant ministries.
Currently, the League is entering the international level and will present projects that need reconstruction to new partners. There are many urgent tasks in the plans for the reconstruction of Ukrainian communities and individual branches of the state and at the same time their renovation within the framework of modern social needs, comfort, thermal modernization and compliance with EU norms and standards.
