In the July issue of the EU Cooperation Monthly Digest, the EU Delegation to Ukraine shared interesting stories about the EU’s assistance to Ukraine.
The newsletter covered the EU’s grants for projects in the cultural and creative industries, its funding of the construction of a modern museum in the interactive complex ‘Mysterious Dungeons of Rivne’ and its support of civic initiatives to help vulnerable populations during the pandemic. The EU also facilitated the creation of an interactive map of accessible routes for people with disabilities.
As part of its support for stronger economy in Ukraine, the EU helped to make Melitopol sweet cherries an international brand, and supported the development of a mobile platform for electric car owners and a technology for recycling plastic waste into paving slabs. In addition, the EU helped Ukrainian garment companies keep their businesses afloat during the pandemic.
To contribute to stronger governance in Ukraine, the EU helped improve the conditions for start-ups, develop a probation system to reintegrate convicts back into society and increase fire safety in communities.
The July newsletter also showcased the EU’s assistance in resolving the conflict in Ukraine's east. The Union supported female survivors of violence, and funded the demining of the Donetsk Region, which allowed the development of tourism in the area.
