The Government of Norway has signed an agreement with the World Bank to provide NOK 1 billion for the restoration of Ukraine infrastructure damaged in Russian missile attacks.

“There is an urgent need to repair the electricity supply system and other infrastructure in Ukraine following Russia’s bombing campaign against civilian targets. I am pleased that we have signed an agreement today to provide NOK 1 billion to help get repair work under way quickly,” Norwegian Foreign Affairs Minister Anniken Huitfeldt said after signing the document with World Bank Regional Country Director for Eastern Europe Arup Banerji.

The new allocation from Norway is being channelled through the World Bank’s multi-donor Ukraine Relief, Recovery, Reconstruction and Reform Trust Fund (URTF).

“The World Bank will use this fund to continue to mobilise crisis support to the Ukrainian authorities alongside support for repairs to critical infrastructure and more long-term reconstruction,” the press release reads.

Norway has previously provided NOK 300 million in budget support to the Ukrainian government administration via the World Bank. This funding has been used to pay salaries for health care personnel, teachers and public sector employees, as well as for payment of pensions and social benefits.
