As the Russian aggression against Ukraine continues, France welcomes the Ukraine Recovery Conference in Lugano, which is attended by French representatives.
This conference gives partners the opportunity to coordinate their efforts and agree on the broad principles that will serve as guidelines for the crucial reconstruction of this country.
France, at both the national and local levels, will primarily focus on the reconstruction of the Chernihiv region, which was hit hard by the Russian bombardment during the first few weeks of the war. The city of Chernihiv has long had ties to France.
These efforts will supplement the humanitarian, economic, financial, diplomatic and military aid that France has been providing to Ukraine since February 24. France will maintain this aid as long as is necessary.
