Zelensky: Scope of fast recovery plan includes 50,000 objects worth EUR 12B

Since the beginning of Russia’s full-scale invasion, hostilities have directly affected 11 regions of Ukraine, more than 50,000 objects need fast restoration.

President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky said this in an online speech at the forum on the resilience and reconstruction of Ukraine, which is taking place in Paris, Ukrinform reports.

“In total, hostilities directly affected the territory of eleven regions. The scope of our Fast Recovery Plan, which covers other regions as well, is more than 50,000 objects and more than 12 billion euros,” he said.

As an example, Zelensky spoke about Chernihiv region, which was liberated from the Russian invaders by the Ukrainian Defense Forces in the spring. This is the region over which France has already taken patronage. 

“In general, 8,896 objects need to be restored in Chernihiv region only in the framework of the Fast Recovery Plan - i.e. the objects that require immediate efforts. These are more than 7,000 apartment buildings that were damaged or destroyed by shelling. More than 7,000 private houses. And hospitals, schools, communications, transport, enterprises. And this is only one region!” Zelensky said.

According to Zelensky, France has already provided Ukraine with assistance in the restoration of bridges.

“But both for the French state and for French companies, there are much more opportunities and projects that need implementation,” the President added.

As reported earlier, President Volodymyr Zelensky stated that at least EUR 1.5 billion is needed for only the superficial restoration of Ukrainian energy facilities destroyed by Russian missile and drone strikes.
