The OECD has been working in close partnership with Ukraine to support its ambitious reform agenda for more than 30 years.
In February 2022, the OECD Council unanimously condemned Russia’s large-scale aggression against Ukraine and upgraded co-operation efforts to provide greater support during wartime, while bolstering the government’s Recovery Plan.
