During the full-scale war, many cities and towns in Ukraine have suffered damage, and some have been literally razed to the ground. To raise our country from the ruins, we need a plan and tens of billions of funding. Back in 2022, the government of Ukraine and the heads of other states and governments, international partners and financial organisations, after a targeted discussion of the recovery at a conference in Lugano, Switzerland, adopted a conclusive declaration that lays out the path for the recovery process. “The foundation of the declaration are the seven Lugano principles,” said Ignazio Cassis, then President of Switzerland. “They define the beginning of the recovery process, the criteria and methods of recovery.” How will these principles be implemented in practice? What kind of support can Ukraine expect? How can each of us contribute to the recovery?
