We continued to unite our partners for the sake of support and aid to our state right now. Almost 1.9 billion dollars. It was for this amount that agreements were reached in Lugano in support of Ukraine," Shmyhal said.

In particular, according to him, an agreement was reached on $600 million for financial support, more than $500 million for the development of Ukraine's agricultural sector, storage, improvement of logistics, liquidity for enterprises, more than $500 million for preparations for the heating season and almost $250 million for the development of projects on the digital transformation of Ukraine.

"We are grateful to the governments of Switzerland, Sweden, Britain, the World Bank, the EBRD, the EIB, private Ukrainian and international businesses for this solidarity," Shmyhal said.

He emphasized that the coalition of protection and support of Ukraine is bigger and more powerful than ever.

"No one feels 'war fatigue,' as the Kremlin dreams of it. Ukraine will win, because the whole world stands with Ukraine," Shmyhal said.

On July 5, representatives of more than 40 countries and about 20 international organizations approved the Lugano Declaration and pledged to support Ukraine.
