Berlin German Chancellor Olaf Scholz has called for a “Marshall Plan” to aid Ukraine’s post-war recovery ahead of three back-to-back summits of EU, G7 and NATO leaders.
Speaking before the German parliament on Wednesday, Scholz said that the reconstruction of Ukraine after Russia withdraws its troops would be “a task for generations.” “Just like war-torn Europe in the past, Ukraine today needs a Marshall Plan for reconstruction,” he said. “We will need many more billions of euros and dollars for reconstruction, and this will take years.” He added that this had to be done in conjunction with major financial institutions, donor countries and international organizations, and that he had invited Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to this week’s G7 summit in southern Germany to discuss this.
