6:40am: Switzerland hosts 2022 Ukraine recovery conference

Leaders from dozens of countries, international organisations and the private sector gathered in Switzerland on Monday to hash out a “Marshall Plan” to rebuild war-ravaged Ukraine.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, who will take part virtually, warned on Sunday that there was a lot of work to be done even in the areas that have been liberated.

The two-day conference, which will have a high security presence and be held in the picturesque southern Swiss city of Lugano, had been planned well before Russia launched its full-scale invasion on February 24.

It had originally been slated to discuss reforms in Ukraine, but once the Russian bombs began to fall it was repurposed to focus on reconstruction.
