“We are looking at the biggest need in the short term. Ukraine currently lacks $5 billion a month from its budget. That is why the Netherlands is providing 200 million euros to support liquidity as a loan through the IMF. This is a substantial amount of money in the pocket,” Schreinemacher said on on the sidelines of the conference on the restoration of Ukraine in Lugano the day before.
When asked whether the Dutch government already has concrete plans for reconstruction projects in Ukraine, she replied: “We don’t have any detailed plans yet.”
“Ukraine must first indicate what is needed and what is planned for October,” Schreinemacher noted.
In the declaration of the conference in Lugano, the heads of state and government pledged to support Ukraine on its path to recovery. A coordination platform is being created for the preparation and implementation of the country’s recovery and development plan.
