The Ukrainian authorities signed an agreement with Japan on a $100 million loan for a period of 30 years at 1% per annum with a grace period of 10 years. About it informs Ministry of Finance on Thursday, April 28.
“An agreement was signed between the government of Ukraine and the government of Japan on a loan from the Japan International Cooperation Agency for development policy in the field of emergency economic recovery and a grant to strengthen the healthcare and medicine system,” the agency said in a press release.
We are talking about budgetary support to stabilize the situation, in particular, to ensure priority social, humanitarian, health care costs, support for internally displaced persons and other priority costs.

Earlier it was reported that Japan would organize 10 humanitarian aid flights for Ukrainian refugees. The S-2 military transport aircraft will regularly deliver humanitarian aid to Poland and Romania.
And in March, Japan sent a batch of military aid to Ukraine with a total weight of 38 tons. Then it was about helmets and body armor.
