UK to help Ukraine restore forests and national parks

On the sidelines of the COP28 conference, Ukraine’s Minister of Environmental Protection and Natural Resources Ruslan Strilets and UK Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Steve Barclay signed a Memorandum of Cooperation.

According to the Ukrainian ministry’s press service, the British partners support such steps and are ready to share their expertise. They also noted the importance of continuing to document the facts of environmental damage caused by the war.

Strilets stressed that it will take at least 80 years to restore Ukraine’s burned forests.
