PM Groysman hopes for adoption of Marshall Plan for Ukraine
Ukraine's Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman is looking forward to the adoption of a Marshall Plan for Ukraine, according to the Ukrainian news portal LB.ua.
"This is a very good idea. We worked on it with our European partners under the first government of [Arseniy] Yatsenyuk, but somehow it did not work, but I think it [the plan] is very acceptable. The European People's Party included it in the objectives of its program. I would like to see it implemented," he said in an interview with TV Channel 112 Ukraine, LB.ua said.
