BRITAIN will lead a global crowdfunding campaign for cash and skills to help Ukraine rebuild after Vlad­imir Putin’s invasion.

Rishi Sunak will this week urge investors and business leaders to chip in for a 21st Century Marshall Plan for Kyiv.

The PM will issue the call to arms at the Ukraine Recovery Conference In London this Wednesday.

Volodymyr Zelensky will address the event via video link.

Rishi Sunak will say: “Ukraine’s bravery on the battlefield must be matched by the vision of the private sector to help the country rebuild and recover.

“Time and time again, Ukraine has shown its ability to rapidly harness innovation and creativity, and I know its recovery will be no different.

“The illegal invasion of Ukraine has devastated businesses and livelihoods throughout the country, but it has not destroyed the ingenuity or determination of the Ukrainian people.

“A financially stronger, technologically advanced Ukraine will bolster its ability to drive Russia back behind its borders and build a brighter future for a sovereign and modern Ukraine of the future.”

Countries are set to announce a new website which lets global companies team up with Ukrainian businesses to help them get back on their feet after Putin’s bombing campaign.

While other initiatives to “matchmake” partnerships between Ukrainian businesses and their Western allies will also be unveiled.
