Ukrainian govt launching website to raise funds for Ukraine under United24 project - PM

KYIV. May 4 (Interfax-Ukraine) - The Ukrainian government is launching a website to raise funds in support of Ukraine as part of the United24 global project, Ukrainian Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal said.

"It is important for the government even now to draw up a plan for the reconstruction and transformation of our state," Shmyhal said at a government meeting on Tuesday.

The reconstruction plan will have two dimensions: regional and parametric, he said.

In particular, the regional dimension is when partner countries, sister cities or corporations help rebuild a specific Ukrainian city or a region, while the parametric approach is a program of the National Reconstruction Council, which formulates parameters for the reconstruction and transformation of each sector of the Ukrainian economy.

"In order to make this process systemic and more transparent, the government is launching the u24.gov.ua website. It is a platform for raising money in support of Ukraine as part of the United24 global project," Shmyhal said.

"The National Bank [of Ukraine] will present daily reports on how the fund-raising effort goes. All ministries will present their reports to the public as to what purposes money has been spent on. In Ukraine, the Deloitte company, which is a member of the Deloitte international network, will check the ministries' reports and will guarantee the transparency of the platform's operations," the prime minister said.
