Ukraine plans to attract another $500 million from the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development. The funds will be used to support low-income people, internally displaced persons, pay salaries to teachers and doctors.

"Thanks to the Government decisions adopted today, Ukraine will attract another $500 million from the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development... We will direct the funds to support the low-income, IDPs, and pay salaries to teachers and doctors," Prime Minister of Ukraine Denys Shmyhal said at the Cabinet’s meeting.

According to him, this is part of a large project to support public expenditures to ensure sustainable public administration.

As reported, Ukraine implements a joint project with the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (IBRD) and the International Development Association (IDA) "Public Expenditures for Administrative Capacity Endurance (PEACE) in Ukraine" worth $6.3 billion and EUR 1.441 billion, including a grant of $5.8 billion.
