As the United States had gotten paid for Europe’s World War II recovery, making it the powerhouse it is today, Germany, too, learned from history and sees the priceless value in this and seeks to capitalize from it.
Germany is working on a ‘Marshall Plan’ for Ukraine, Karl-Georg Wellmann, a member of Chancellor Angela Merkel’s Christian Democrats and head of the German-Ukrainian parliamentary group, said in an interview with the newspaper Segodnya.
“We have been working on a new strategy for Ukraine’s stabilization and development with much greater financial and political efforts. This is something new, and it will supplement the Association Agreement,” he said.
UNIAN memo. The Marshall Plan was an American initiative named after Secretary of State George Marshall to aid Western Europe, in which the United States gave $13 billion in economic support to help rebuild Western European economies after the end of World War II. The plan was in operation for four years beginning in April 1948. The goals of the United States were to rebuild war-devastated regions, remove trade barriers, modernize industry, make Europe prosperous again, and prevent the spread of communism.
