Shmyhal also informed Pritzker about the vision for Ukraine’s recovery and outlined the needs for each of the priorities of fast recovery: energy, demining, restoration of housing, critical infrastructure and economy.

"I thanked USAID for joint business support programs that contribute to the creation of new jobs. We are working with the World Bank to address the needs for post-war reconstruction. I emphasized that the aggressor has to pay for the damage caused. The key tool for this is the confiscation of frozen Russian assets for the recovery of Ukraine," the Head of Government posted on Telegram.
