EBRD commits up to EUR3 billion to Ukraine

24.10.2022 13:37 "Agro Perspectiva" (Kyiv) Bank leaders meet President Zelenskyy in Kyiv

The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development will commit up to EUR3 billion over 2022–2023 to help Ukraines businesses and economy keep functioning.

On a visit to Kyiv, EBRD President Odile Renaud-Basso told Ukraines leader Volodymyr Zelenskyy of the Banks determination to support Ukraine while it defends itself against Russias aggression.

Since the invasion began in February, the EBRD has committed more than EUR1 billion, and aims to triple that figure by the end of 2023. Its primary focus will be to support the real economy — maintaining energy and food security, restoring rail infrastructure, and supporting the pharmaceutical industry.

In their meeting, President Zelenskyy highlighted the damage to the countrys infrastructure, and said the Russians had intensified targeting electricity generation and distribution.

EBRD investment has already been made into Ukraines electricity companies, as well as providing up to EUR500m liquidity support for the countrys main gas supplier. Discussions are also underway to scale up funding for urgent repairs of the electricity grid and support municipal authorities in Kyiv, Lviv and Dnipro. EBRD investments are backed by donors or guarantors from countries including the US, and other EU and G7 countries. Norway recently pledged EUR200m in support.

President Zelenskyy thanked the EBRD for its support, and President Renaud-Basso responded by expressing her admiration for the courage and determination of the Ukrainian people.

The Banks President was accompanied on her two-day visit by Vice President, Banking, Alain Pilloux and the Managing Director for Eastern Europe and the Caucasus, Matteo Patrone. The group held other meetings with the Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal, the Mayor of Kyiv, Vitali Klitschko, and the new Governor of the National Bank of Ukraine, Andrii Pyshnyi. They also had talks with business leaders including the heads of the energy company Ukrenergo, the rail company Ukrzaliznytsia, as well as Privatbank and Dragon Capital.

After her visit, President Renaud-Basso said: «I was keen to meet President Zelenskyy to express our solidarity and support for Ukraine in person. He left me in no doubt about the scale of assistance needed, and the EBRD is determined to do all it can to play its part.

»The EBRD is the largest institutional investor in Ukraine, and has links there stretching back 30 years. Its is appalling to see the damage done by Russias invasion, and yet also moving to see the resilience of the population. I said it on February 24th, and I will keep saying it — we stand by Ukraine."

The EBRD is a multilateral bank that promotes the development of the private sector and entrepreneurial initiative in 36 economies across three continents. The Bank is owned by 71 countries as well as the EU and the EIB. EBRD investments are aimed at making the economies in its regions competitive, inclusive, well-governed, green, resilient and integrated.
