"In 2023, the Mykolaiv Development Agency managed to attract UAH 305 million of donor funds from our international partners for the restoration of the city. This year, our experts also continue to work in this direction," said Viktor Sikalenko, Head of the Agency.

According to him, the Mykolaiv Recovery and Development Office has now been opened on the Agency's premises. It employs a number of experts in various areas of the city's life. They help businesses, institutions, and organizations in the city to attract donor funds for energy efficiency projects, restoration of critical and social infrastructure, small and medium-sized business development, green transition, reintegration of IDPs and veterans, youth policy development, administrative services, etc.

"The Mykolaiv City Council, together with the Danish government and the United Nations Development Program, decided to create a Recovery Office, where experts in various fields will work and help the community with professional development, project management, English language learning, etc. We have been tasked with developing an appropriate action plan, and we are working on it," said Sikalenko.
