    Ukraine and the EIB

    Since 2007, our operations in Ukraine have supported municipal infrastructure, transport, roads, energy and small businesses. This support has been amplified following Russia’s full-scale invasion in 2022.

    Our financing in Ukraine focuses on restoring vital infrastructure and economic revitalisation. Our activities in the country are in full support of Ukraine’s bid to join the European Union. This support aligns with the decision made in December 2023 by the European Council to open accession negotiations with Ukraine.

    In Ukraine, we have focused on:


    We finance projects to rehabilitate or construct municipal and social infrastructure in Ukraine, such as hospitals and healthcare facilities, social housing, water and wastewater facilities, public lighting and other services. We support energy-efficient upgrades and green projects that strengthen Ukraine’s energy independence. We also help rebuild buildings damaged in the war, as well as address the needs of internally displaced people.


    We invest in upgrading high-voltage power lines, substations and enhancing the overall reliability of Ukraine’s energy system. We also finance emergency repairs to hydropower plants and other energy infrastructure damaged by Russia’s war on Ukraine.


    We support road infrastructure, including the repair of the M-09 road, a vital transport artery between Ukraine and Poland. We also financed the modernisation of urban public transport, including the acquisition of new trolleybuses, trams, buses and metro cars in Ukrainian cities such as Kyiv, Kharkiv, Odesa, Lutsk and Lviv, among others.


    We bolster small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) by extending credit lines to local banks. Our loan guarantees have helped sustain more than 140 000 jobs since 2014. We have also supported SMEs impacted by the war in Ukraine and nearby countries through our EU4Business Guarantee Facility and our EU for Ukraine Fund.
