On Friday, Norway signed an agreement aimed at repairing damaged infrastructure in Ukraine worth around 1 billion kroner.

"With friends like that, I am sure we will provide electricity to every Ukrainian home," he added.

Norwegian Foreign Minister Anniken Huitfeldt signed the agreement with the World Bank in Oslo on Friday.

"There is an urgent need to repair the power supply and other infrastructure in Ukraine after Russia's bombing of civilian targets. Therefore, I am pleased that we have signed an agreement of 1 billion kroner which will quickly contribute to this," Huitfeldt stated in a press release.

The Norwegian contribution to Ukraine will be provided through the World Bank's multi-donor Ukraine Relief, Recovery, Reconstruction, and Reform Trust Fund (URTF).
