The resumption of critical infrastructure, social protection; the resumption of the economy, the resumption of lending to small and medium-sized businesses, the creation of self-sufficient communities, the return of confidence to people and the psychological support of the population – are the key points of “Restoration and Development of Peace in Ukraine’s Eastern Regions” program.
