Without waiting for the war to end, Ukraine continues to work on the reconstruction of energy, housing, critical, and social infrastructure.

That’s according to Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal, who spoke at a government meeting on February 24, Ukrinform reports.

"The key word this year is victory. The second top word this year is recovery. Already now. Not waiting for the end of the war. Reconstruction has already begun. Fast and efficient. We have drawn up a plan. A reconstruction agency has been created. Projects have been launched. A budgetary fund has been formed. We have already found part of the financing," said the prime minister.
