Ukraine needs ‘colossal funds’ to rebuild, Zelensky says

Ukraine’s rebuilding and recovery need to start now, President Volodymyr Zelensky said in an address to his nation. “Colossal funds” are required to rebuild critical infrastructure, including schools, hospitals, and waste processing plants. Huge sums will also be needed for the smooth return of welfare services and “normal economic life,” he said in a late Monday nightly video.

The president of the war-torn country said “tens of thousands” of homes have been destroyed across the country, especially in the south, and that “thousands of enterprises are out of business.” “That is why the recovery of Ukraine is not only about what needs to be done later, after our victory, but also about what needs to be done at this time,” he said.
