The European Investment Bank (EIB) is ready to redirect funds issued for programs in Ukraine for fight against coronavirus, Foreign Minister of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba has said.
“I spoke with the European Investment Bank, which is ready to redirect certain funds allocated for programs in Ukraine to measures to overcome the coronavirus,” he said in an interview with Interfax-Ukraine.
In addition, Kuleba said that at a meeting with the head of the mission of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) in Ukraine, Florence Gillette, he discussed the question of what kind of help the ICRC can provide to Ukraine in preventing the spread of coronavirus.
“We are ready to receive something as humanitarian aid, to purchase something, but this search is being conducted at all levels, in international organizations, in business contacts,” the minister said.
According to him, the entire system of the Foreign Ministry of Ukraine is now working on two fundamental tasks: the return of Ukrainians from other countries and the search for humanitarian assistance and procurement.
