International technical assistance helps to solve the current problems of countries. International Technical Assistance (ITA) is aimed at rebuilding the Donetsk region due to the effects of the military conflict. However, in modern conditions, there is an insufficient elaboration of both theoretical and practical issues of international assistance in Ukraine. The purpose of the article is to characterize the provision of international technical assistance in the reconstruction of the Donetsk region. Information on the ITA (2016-2019) was analyzed. The main directions of the ITA were identified: receiving humanitarian assistance; support for the development of entrepreneurship, development of education, restoration of the infrastructure of medical and educational institutions. The study identified problems with the provision and using of ITA: the imperfection of strategic planning of ITA revenues; coordination of activities between donors and ITA recipients; inconsistency of the ITA with the tasks, strategies, priorities of socio-economic development of Ukraine and the tasks of sustainable development of the country; lack of a regulatory mechanism for obtaining and using ITA; effective monitoring and evaluation of the use of ITA; transparency in the use of ITA; consistency in work on MTD projects; inefficient use of MTD funds. External and internal factors to increase the efficiency of ITA using were identified. The following recommendations were proposed: international technical assistance should be provided on the basis of: 1. Coordination: with national, regional and local strategies; priorities and tasks of reconstruction of the Donetsk region from the consequences of the military conflict; activities of ITA donors and recipients in the processes of project preparation, control and monitoring of ITA implementation. 2. Improvement of: ITA management methods (planning, budgeting, control and monitoring processes, calculation of efficiency from ITA using); a regulatory framework for the implementation of the ITA (adoption of the Law of Ukraine «On International Technical Assistance»). 3. Taking into account the state budget of Ukraine the resources of the international technical assistance. 4. Implementation of the mechanism of co-financing of ITA and recovery programs.
