Who will pay for Ukraine's reconstruction? | Inside Story

More than four months of war has destroyed countless cities and towns in Ukraine.
Its allies, though, want to start rebuilding as soon as possible.
More than 40 nations and international organisations have outlined priorities for the reconstruction of Ukraine.
They met in the Swiss city of Lugano, and agreed on the Lugano Principles.
But it's no small task. Ukrainian Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal estimates rebuilding costs will reach $750 billion.
With the war still raging, isn't this discussion a little premature?
And will the principles agreed on have any lasting impact?
