We Need a Marshall Plan for Ukraine 

The Marshall Plan was an audacious, innovative strategy to tackle the most pressing challenges of its time. Breaking Western Europe’s cycle of conflict and rebuilding economies devastated by World War II was an immense task, and the Marshall Plan is a concrete example of the scale of change made possible by imagination, pragmatism, and generosity. GMF’s work carries this spirit into the 21st century.

In George C. Marshall’s words: "With foresight, and a willingness on the part of our people to face up to the vast responsibility which history has clearly placed upon our country, the difficulties I have outlined can and will be overcome."

Amid Russia's war on Ukraine, the German Marshall Fund of the United States provides insights, commentary, and analysis on a Ukraine's recovery and reconstruction through the spirit of the Marshall Plan.

A Modern Marshall Plan for Ukraine

The unequivocal answer to this question is “yes,”
