The UK and allies create the Partnership Fund for a Resilient Ukraine in the eastern and southern regions of Ukraine as the British Embassy in Kyiv reported citing Wendy Morton, the FCDO Minister for the European Neighbourhood.
“The UK, together with Canada, Sweden, Switzerland, and the US, will support Ukraine to mitigate Russia’s destabilizing influence in its southern and eastern regions,” the message says.
The Fund will start its work until December 2021. Its goal is to gather £35 million during three years among the countries partners who stated readiness to become donors.
This organization will finance a range of initiatives to increase the resilience of regions affected by conflict. It includes technical advice to the government and grant investments that create economic opportunities and improve people’s access to public services in southern and eastern Ukraine.
It will allow to provide more quality public services, increase income of households, and create closer ties between the societies, as well as higher economic stability in the regions of south and east of Ukraine.
As we reported, The UN urges international donors to provide urgent financial to help to satisfy the most basic needs of 1.9 million people in the Donbas Conflict zone.
Earlier, Head of the UN Human Rights Monitoring Mission in Ukraine Matilda Bogner stated that about 4,000 people became victims of torture and ill-treatment during the war in Donbas (2014-2021).
