The Greatest Threat to the Reconstruction of Ukraine May Be the Fatigue of Western Partners – Danylo Getmantsev

11 September 2023

 The fatigue of the global community from long-term support of Ukraine may harm the country’s rapid and effective post-war reconstruction.

That was stated by Ukrainian MP Danylo Getmantsev at the Yalta European Strategy (YES) Annual Meeting “The Future is Being Decided in Ukraine”, organised by YES in partnership with the Victor Pinchuk Foundation.

 “We greatly appreciate the financial support of our partners from all over the world. More than 100 billion dollars in military aid, refugee support, and humanitarian aid have been provided. It is natural that such long-term support leads to fatigue. This may turn into a very big mistake for the world if it allows this fatigue to destroy our plans,” he noted.

 The MP shared the Government’s plan to ensure the effectiveness of the reconstruction of Ukraine and its further integration into the European Union.

 “We need to increase the administrative capacity of all services and agencies involved in the reconstruction; they should work in accordance with the European principles of transparency, and the respective audit shall be held by international companies,” added Danylo Getmantsev.

 Danylo Getmantsev also emphasized the need to increase the role of Parliament in the process of reconstruction and European integration, pointing out the need for quick implementation of almost 3,000 legislative acts.
