Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyi plans to meet with large businesses to get financing for Donbas infrastructure once Ukraine has regained control over the territory.
The region will need significant financial assistance after years of an ongoing war between Ukraine and Russian-led forces that hasn’t shown signs of abating.
“We are going to meet a big business in June and we will talk about the Donbas development. We have a plan, we want to offer businesses investment opportunities in Donbas, opportunities to invest in the infrastructure of Donbas, because Donbas will definitely return, and someone has to do it,” Zelenskyi said on the”Snidanok” program on TV channel 1 + 1, Novosti Donbassa reported.
Zelenskyi said that he had already met with the oligarchs, such as Victor Pinchuk, to discuss investment in the region. He didn’t name others, however.
“There are not many of them, someone else came to us, I don’t remember. Some politicians came, they are oligarchs too, but we won’t talk about them,” he said.
