Poland is ready to help Ukraine with post-war reconstruction of its airports. Polish Deputy Minister of Development Funds and Regional Policy Marcin Horala stated this at a meeting with Ukraine’s Ambassador to Poland Vasyl Zvarych.
The Polish Ministry of Development Funds and Regional Policy announced in a statement, the CFTS portal reports.
According to the statement, the participants in the meeting also discussed the possibilities of supporting the reconstruction of Ukrainian airports, cooperation on the implementation of a high-speed rail project (KDP), and the related revision of the TEN-T network.
"We see several opportunities to support Ukraine in a broad understanding of the post-war reconstruction of Ukrainian airports. We are constantly in contact with representatives of the Ukrainian Association of Airports, as well as with Ukrainian airports themselves. We can also offer them our expert consulting services regarding investments related to airports and the planning of their future development," Horala said.
Polish Airports State Enterprise’s President Stanislaw Wojtera also attended the meeting with the Ukrainian ambassador to Poland, which took place at the Polish Ministry of Development Funds and Regional Policy. Both sides agreed to continue working on the development of a model for targeted cooperation in this area.
They also discussed strengthening cooperation on the implementation of a high-speed railway project between the two countries and the related revision of the TEN-T network.
"In addition to the Warsaw-Kyiv railway line via Yahodyn, we want to propose a new route that will connect Polish and Ukrainian cities. The Centralny Port Komunikacyjny company plans to extend the Lublin-Zamosc-Belzec railway line to the Polish-Ukrainian border. From the Ukrainian side, such a route could pass through Rava Ruska to Lviv and Kyiv. In the future, it will also be possible to extend it to the eastward of the Carpathians to the Black Sea ports of Ukraine and Romania," Horala said.
