The Prime Minister of Romania, Marcel Ciolacu, and his Ukrainian counterpart, Denys Shmyhal, signed a memorandum in Kyiv focusing on 'safe transit of Ukrainian products and the development strategy of border checkpoints between Ukraine and Romania, along with the associated road infrastructure.' 

Digi24 reported this.

The Ukrainian Cabinet of Ministers and the Romanian government have agreed on the construction of a cross-border road bridge over the Tysa River, connecting the towns of Bila Tserkva and Sighetu Marmatiei.

According to Myroslav Biletsky, Deputy Head of the Zakarpattia Regional State Administration, construction work has already commenced on the other side, with the completion of the bridge scheduled by the end of 2024. This historic joint meeting between the governments of Ukraine and Romania in Kyiv resulted in the signing of seven bilateral agreements, including a memorandum between the Romanian Ministry of Economy and the Ukrainian Ministry of Strategic Industries regarding cooperation in the defence industry, and a document on cooperation in the pharmaceutical sector between the Ministries of Health. 

The European Commission has welcomed this cooperation between Romania and Ukraine, believing it will further enhance the capacity of solidarity corridors, considering the damage inflicted on Ukraine's transport infrastructure due to Russian aggression. Romania plays a crucial role in the operation of solidarity corridors and actively collaborates with all parties involved. 

The improvement of border crossings between Ukraine and Romania will not only cater to Ukraine's import and export needs but also secure its place in the European transport network, according to the European Commission.

Funding for the project will come from the EU budget, the European Investment Bank (EIB), and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development. 

Recall that in Kyiv, a historic joint session of the governments of Romania and Ukraine took place on the eve, during which seven bilateral cooperation agreements were signed.

As reported by The Gaze, the Moldovan Parliament has ratified an agreement between the governments of Moldova and Ukraine for the construction of a bridge over the Dniester River. This bridge will connect the Moldovan village of Cosăuţi with the Ukrainian city of Yampil.
