Since the beginning of Russia's invasion of Ukraine, according to UN data, the number of affected civilians in Ukraine has exceeded 30,000 – over 10,000 have died, and nearly 20,000 have been injured.

Two years into the war, Ukraine needs $486 billion for reconstruction – according to calculations from a report just published by the World Bank. This is almost three times the estimated nominal GDP of Ukraine for 2023 and about 70 percent of Poland's GDP. This half a trillion dollars covers the costs of rebuilding and restoring infrastructure in an ambitious 10-year perspective.

The World Bank report indicates that the greatest current needs of Ukrainians are in housing (over $80 billion, or 17 percent of the total necessary expenditure). According to experts' estimates, 10 percent of Ukraine's total housing resources have been destroyed or damaged.
