During the national telethon, Vice Prime Minister Iryna Vereshchuk emphasized this.
This is the second time that the Ukrainians have had to prepare for the winter in the middle of a full-scale war. To ensure a successful heating season, the government needs all possible support.
The Vice Prime Minister noted the importance of supporting long-term projects, including employment and housing for IDPs. For the time being, however, it is worthwhile to focus on the current problems that need to be solved as soon as possible.
She said humanitarian response is now an important task. It is about building the necessary reserves in communities. In particular, firewood, heaters, warm clothing, and food parcels. Therefore, we must carry out the same projects we executed last year during this winter.
“Our priority is to safely navigate winter season, and secure the well-being of our citizens. Once we have achieved this, we can concentrate on progressing and advancing,” stated the head of the Ministry of Reintegration.
