$9.5 billion will be needed to restore Kharkiv — City Mayor
At least $9.5 billion will be needed to restore Kharkiv's infrastructure from Russian shelling
This was stated by the mayor of the city Ihor Terekhov.
"Now the shelling continues and it is impossible to decisively calculate all the damages that Kharkiv suffered from the Russian aggressors. In order to restore Kharkiv, we need at least 9.5 billion US dollars," he said.
Ukraine will not be able to find these funds on its own, and after the end of hostilities, we will need the support from Western partners, in particular, the US, says Terekhov.
As of April 22, the Verkhovna Rada reported that the Russian army launched at least 1,200 missiles and UAVs at key objects of the Ukrainian energy system, and its restoration requires more than $1 billion.
