Ukraine – Catherine Colonna’s participation in the Ukraine Recovery Conference in London (June 21, 2023)


Catherine Colonna, Minister for Europe and Foreign Affairs, will take part in the Ukraine Recovery Conference in London on June 21, jointly organized by the United Kingdom and Ukraine. The main goal of the conference is to encourage private stakeholders to get involved in the country’s reconstruction. The Minister will be accompanied by Pierre Heilbronn, France’s Special Envoy for Ukraine’s relief and reconstruction.

Our medium- and long-term support efforts build on the humanitarian, economic, diplomatic and military aid that France has been providing to Ukraine since February 24, 2022.

The Minister will confirm France’s willingness to support Ukraine for as long as necessary in the face of the Russian aggression. We are ready to respond to Ukraine’s humanitarian needs, as demonstrated once again by the recent aid provided in the wake of the Kakhovka dam’s destruction. The Minister will also confirm an increase in the resources devoted to the stabilization and reconstruction of Ukraine, through contributions to priority projects for the country and by developing instruments likely to facilitate the mobilization of French economic players in this long-term effort.
