President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky has reported on the fulfillment of his election promise: this year Ukrainians will be able to get an affordable mortgage for housing at 7%.
“We promised to do everything in the program to make young Ukrainian families have a headache from just one question: what to choose – an apartment in the city or a country house,” the head of state recalled in a video message posted on his Facebook page on Friday morning. He noted that an important step has been taken this week on the way to this – the mortgage available for Ukrainians was launched at 7% per annum.

“I think this is a great victory. When someone tells you that in his time the indicators in the country were higher, he is not lying in this sense. Because two years ago the average mortgage rate in Ukraine was 21%. Now it will be seven. And already this year, Ukrainians – and, by the way, this applies not only to young families, but also to all our citizens – and so, this year they will be able to get an affordable mortgage for housing at 7%,” Zelensky said.

He wrote on his Facebook page that he plans to establish a serious production of tens of thousands of electric bikes a year with a design and engineering bureau, production of metal, plastic, electrical and electronic components, battery assembly, software development and much more, which is necessary for the production and assembly of electric vehicles.
“I presented our project to the president, told him that the Mexican police ride our bikes. Zelensky immediately offered his help in transferring Ukrainian police officers to our electric bikes: “We will help, you can contact me. Yes, directly. My team will help,” Tonkopiy said, citing the president as saying.
He also said that Zelensky announced his readiness to help Delfast to build a plant for the production of electric bikes, presumably in Kyiv region.
Delfast already has a confirmed demand for tens of thousands of bikes from customers around the world, Tonkopiy said.
