Ukraine is in talks with the European Union and the U.S. to establish a so-called peace bond for retail investors to help fund war efforts and reconstruction. 

The European Commission has offered advice and the role of go-between with national authorities in the bloc that would oversee and approve a sale of the new bonds, according to a person familiar with the discussions. EU and Ukrainian officials have held talks on the matter, the person said.
