Estimated cost to rebuild Ukraine stands at €750 billion
World leaders estimate it would cost €750 billion to rebuild Ukraine post war.
Taoiseach Micheál Martin is visiting Kyiv for discussions with the Ukrainian President, Volodymyr Zelensky.
He’s also visited Borodyanka, Bucha and Irpin to witness the devastation from Russian bombing.
Appearing at an Oireachtas Committee this morning, Foreign Affairs Minister Simon Coveney says the bill to rebuild Ukraine will be immense:
“The initial cost estimate for reconstruction is currently I think at about €750 billion. So we’re talking about a very large country that has extraordinary levels of damage and destruction across multiple cities. Some cities hardly exist anymore.”
