Hennadiy Plis: Kyiv intends to attract foreign donors to develop infrastructure projects

First Deputy Chairman of Kyiv City State Administration Hennadiy Plis says that Kyiv received about $5 million in technical assistance from foreign donors in support of the city infrastructure in 2017, the administration’s press service reports.

“We have a problem - what to do with Kyivenergo [the company supplying electricity and heating]. In particular, using endowment funds we study the situation, conduct an audit, etc. In addition, EUR 200 thousand was allocated to study the situation with Podilsky bridge. This is a financial assistance from Germany, and City Mayor Vitali Klitschko actively cooperates with this country, which helps us and assures us that it is quite possible to collect an investor pool from the German Federal Republic and to find means to modernize this bridge,” the first deputy chairman of Kyiv City State Administration said.

He also stressed that this year Kyiv invests own funds totaling about UAH 1 billion in the construction of Podilsky bridge, while about UAH 7 billion is needed to complete the construction works. According to Plis, Kyiv expects that the rest of the needed funds will be received from investors.
