As the military aggression of the russian federation did not allow to continue the implementation of the Project as it was planned, USIF Executive Committee, after careful study of the situation and consultations with the donor representative (KfW), recognized the  impossibility of further implementation of 2 subprojects (SPs) for creation of housing for IDPs in Izyum, Kharkiv region and Lantseve village, Zaporizhzhia region. After approval of that decision by USIF supervisory board, the number of CPs for implementation was reduced to 24.
The current Project implementation status:
Initially planned construction works were completed within 21 out of 24 subprojects (SPs). Additional works  were executed at 5 objects.
The situation with the remaining 3 SPs is as follows:
  • г construction works  in order to complete restoration of the facility of gymnasium №5 in Chuguiv (Kharkiv region) were resumed ;
  • the troublesome security situation still does not allow to resume implementation of 2 other SPs (IDP housing and kindergarten facilities) in Gulyaypole, Zaporizhzhia region.
In addition to that, in agreement with the KfW, selection of objects for the future "Promotion of Social Infrastructure Development. USIF IX" Project, which will be aimed at providing of internally displaced persons with housing, and procurement of design and cost estimate development services for the selected objects are ongoing. Three objects (2 in Kryvy Rih and 1 in Oleksandrivka, Dnipropetrovsk region) have already been selected and  development of the relevant design and estimate documentation is underway.
