In Berlin this week, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz and European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen hosted European leaders for a conference to rebuild Ukraine.
Ukraine estimates that the cost of reconstruction is $750 billion. The World Bank estimates about half that, at $350 billion. One would expect the two estimates to be close, ahead of an important conference. But these days, rational questioning is perceived as anti-Ukraine, so no one in the media pointed it out.
