The memorandum of understanding on the restoration of infrastructure, which provides for the participation of Turkey in the post-war reconstruction of Ukraine, was signed in Lviv in the presence of the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskiy and the President of Turkey Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
As reported on the website of the head of the Ukrainian state, the document was signed by the Minister of Infrastructure of Ukraine, Oleksandr Kubrakov, and the Minister of Trade of Turkey, Mehmet Mush.
"Turkey is our strategic ally. We are grateful to our Turkish partners for their willingness to cooperate in the restoration of the infrastructure destroyed by Russia. Turkish business has extensive experience in the construction of roads and bridges, in particular the Zaporizhzhya and Kremenchug bridges, and has proven itself as a reliable partner. Therefore, we expect that already soon we will come to concrete practical results of joint recovery," said Kubrakov.
It is envisaged that Turkish government and business structures can develop specific recovery projects, as well as provide consultancy and technical assistance.
The first project considers the restoration of the bridge in the village of Romanivka, Kyiv region, which connects the cities of Bucha and Irpin with the capital.
In the near future, a joint Ukrainian-Turkish working group on recovery issues will be established, within which the mechanisms for attracting Turkish investments in specific projects will be worked out, the report says.
