The aid package will be larger than in the «Marshall Plan»: Germany is preparing a conference on the reconstruction of Ukraine

In the fall, Germany wants to organize an international conference at which plans for the restoration of Ukraine will be discussed.

Ukraine’s Western partners will decide on what should be spent primarily during the reconstruction of our state.

This is reported by Bloomberg with reference to its sources.

Previously, the conference at which plans for the reconstruction of Ukraine will be discussed will be held in Berlin on October 25. Germany has already started the process of preparing for this meeting, so the final date is still unknown.

At this conference, they will discuss how best to spend the money that Western partners will provide for the reconstruction of Ukraine.

German Chancellor Olaf Scholz said on Thursday that the reconstruction package for Ukraine will be bigger than the «Marshall Plan» that helped rebuild Western Europe after World War II.

«The damage is big, it’s going to cost billions and it’s going to require the whole world community to come up with smart solutions. It’s going to be a big, big task that has little to do with the Marshall Plan. It’s going to be bigger,» Scholz said.
