Together with our partners, we approved a special program for Donbas, which stipulates that the European Union and the EBRD will allocate EUR 54 million to Donetsk region and EUR 54 million to Luhansk region. There is nothing more important than rebuilding Donbas destroyed by war, showing people in the occupied territories that the state cares about them, defends them and creates proper conditions for their lives," the head of state said.
