Ukraine plans to use Russia’s frozen assets to finance recovery from war – PM Shmyhal

“The long-term recovery of Ukraine will cost hundreds of billions and must not be financed by Ukrainian taxpayers or the taxpayers of our partners. Such a large-scale reconstruction should take place with Russian funds,” Prime Minister of Ukraine Denys Shmyhal said during a press briefing for the media outlets in New York.
