On 10-12 June, the First Deputy Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Oleksandr Korniienko, heading a Ukrainian parliamentary delegation, visited the Federal Republic of Germany and took part in the Ukraine Recovery Conference 2024.

During his visit, the First Vice Speaker delivered a welcoming speech at a networking event within the framework of the Conference – “Restoring Kharkiv. Main goals and plans”. This is an informational event to establish cooperation between Kharkiv and international partners, including representatives of central and local authorities, business, international organisations and financial institutions. The event aims to facilitate discussions on the city’s recovery efforts and the implementation of projects aimed at stimulating economic revival.

“The mayor of the city has to deal with landscaping, infrastructure development and other things to improve the living standards of his residents. But he is appealing to international partners for military assistance,” said Oleksandr Korniienko in his speech.

At the same time, he noted that there is an understanding that it is necessary to fight not only the consequences but also the cause: “The President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyi has made it very simple and clear – two Patriot systems. For Kharkiv region, they would significantly help protect lives from the aggressor’s terror.”

“Ukraine's experience, quick decisions on the delivery of shells, weapons are what can change the situation,” emphasised Oleksandr Korniienko. 

“Unfortunately, we will use the Recovery Conference to talk about what we need to do to avoid having to rebuild,” he said, adding that a municipal survey shows that Kharkiv residents are most proud of their city and support their mayor, as well as the best landscaping.

“And this is a symbol of how Ukraine continues to work, despite all that the russian federation is trying to do – they can leave the lights off physically, but they will never turn them off in the souls of the brave and courageous Ukrainian people,” said the First Deputy Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine.

In conclusion, he expressed his gratitude to the partners for all the support they have already provided: “And we expect it to increase and not stop.”

“We will never stop fighting.

Kharkiv will never stop fighting,” stressed Oleksandr Korniienko.
