BRIEF June 7, 2022

The World Bank Group and Ukraine


The invasion in Ukraine will have far-reaching economic and social impacts - well beyond the immediate impact it is already having on the lives and livelihoods of those in the country. The World Bank Group continues to coordinate with Ukraine and other development partners to assess these costs and develop a robust response to help the Ukrainian people during this difficult period.

The World Bank’s overall portfolio of projects in Ukraine supports improvements in basic public services, in areas such as water supply, sanitation, heating, power, energy efficiency, roads, social protection, education and healthcare, and private sector development. Since Ukraine joined the World Bank in 1992, the Bank’s commitments to the country have totaled more than $14 billion in about 90 projects and programs.

"We are a long-standing partner of Ukraine and stand with its people at this critical moment."
David Malpass
President, World Bank Group
