"We managed to restore the trust of our international partners. We agreed on the possibility of introducing a new infrastructure project - the renovation of the trolleybus fleet in the city of Kharkiv. I would like to thank the leadership of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development for their confidence in the east of Ukraine," Yulia Svitlychna said.

At the same time, Sevki Acuner announced the EBRD's serious intentions to continue its work in Kharkiv and Kharkiv region.
