The "Army of Recover" government project has provided temporary work to 8,500 unemployed people since its creation in the fall of 2022, according to Economy Minister Yulia Svyrydenko.

Some 4,500 unemployed people from across Ukraine have found temporary work with the project since the start of the new year, the report says.

Svyrydenko said the project aims to involve temporarily unemployed people in "socially useful" work that aids in the reconstruction of Ukraine and corresponds to the needs of specific oblasts. Examples of such work include distributing humanitarian aid, clearing rubble from buildings damaged by Russian attacks, or providing services as "invincibility centers."

Poltava Oblast has the highest number of involvement, with 2,621 people, followed by 1,350 people in Donetsk Oblast, 1,193 people in Kyiv Oblast, and 1,179 people in Sumy Oblast.

The National Bank of Ukraine reported the unemployment rate at 26% as of January 2023.

The Economy Ministry said in November that at least 5 million people had lost jobs due to Russia's full-scale war.
