EU to set up platform for Ukrainian reconstruction

STORY: The platform will be used to map investment needs, coordinate action and channel resources, von der Leyen told the Ukraine Recovery Conference in the Swiss city of Lugano.

"Since the beginning of the war, we - the European Union for example - have mobilized around 6.2 billion euros in financial support and as you know, more has to come and more will come," she said.

The platform will bring together countries, institutions, the private sector and civil society. It will also include international organizations like the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development and the European Investment Bank.
