Australia could 'adopt' a region of Ukraine and pledge to rebuild its infrastructure after it was ravaged by Russia.
Ukrainian ambassador to Australia Vasyl Myroshnychenko put the motion forward to Anthony Albanese's government before a more substantial proposal was submitted last month.
Under the plan, Australia could team up with Denmark to adopt the Mykolaiv region in the south.
Mykolaiv has undergone near-constant shelling by Russian forces, although it remains controlled by Ukraine.
Another option could see Australia and the Netherlands to rebuild Kherson, which is currently occupied by Kremlin forces.
