Lithuania has completed its first project to rebuild Ukraine’s infrastructure. A mobile settlement in Borodyanka has already been handed over to the Ukrainians, where 36 families who have lost their homes will soon move in.
“This is the first, but not the last, development cooperation project implemented by Lithuania to rebuild Ukraine’s destroyed infrastructure. Support to Ukraine is particularly important at this time, because despite the ongoing war in the country, life is moving forward, and those returning have no place to live or to educate their children. That’s why we are already rebuilding Ukraine’s infrastructure so that once the war is over, Ukrainians can work, receive medical treatment or study in their own country,” said Aušrinė Armonaitė, Minister of the Economy and Innovation.
Upon the completion of the mobile settlement project in Borodyanka, Tomas Matulevičius, Lithuanian Commercial Attaché to Ukraine, handed over the keys to the settlement to the Mayor of Borodyanka and signed a deed of handover.
“We hope that the Ukrainians, who have picked up the baton from the Lithuanians, will soon be able to accommodate families there. In the near future, our goal is to complete other infrastructure reconstruction projects in Ukraine, which would allow us to make everyday life of families who stayed in their home country at least somewhat easier,” said Matulevičius, the Commercial Attaché of the Republic of Lithuania.
